"serious need of setting up mapserver" and "I am on a shared linux box with no 
access to shell" might no fits...
basic mapserer is a cgi, can you upload cgi to your server and have it running 
depending on its libs ?
Few shared servers allow mapserver setups. I had one for a moment with full 
php_mapscript digitize mode, but it didn't last their updates )-:
I think "serious [...] mapserver" and "shared linux box" might not fit...
