Thank you guys for the response.  Mktemp is not on my linux server (actually, neither is dpkg), I am actually having difficulties getting it compiled...so if anyone has mktemp precompiled for linux that might help a ton.  I would like to install this as a root.

I am used to working in a windows environment and am not sure what to do to fix this error I am recieving.  I have fgs_installer.sh and fgs-mapserver_phpmapscript_4.8.2-1.2-linux-i386.bin in my main or / directory.

On which platform are you installing fgs?  Do you install it as normal 
user or as root?  In which directory do you want to install it?

mktemp doesn't seem to be installed on your system.  Test it by doing 
dpkg -l |grep mktemp
