Mablab is a tool for editing and previewing map files, browsing WMS
servers and creating simple php mapscript applications. It isn't
necessary to use it to work with mapserver. There are other ways to
build applications, most of them accessible from http://maptools.org.

I recommend you start with the "New Users" document on the mapserver
site (http://mapserver.gis.umn.edu/new_users).
