This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.
You can upgrade to Froyo for the Galaxy 5 already - it was just released by a few guys recently. See this post on Samfirmware - samfirmware.com/WEBPROTECT-i5500.htm, for more information. Otherwise by mid-December almost all regions should have it appearing on your official Samsung Kies tool.
PS. I don't have a Galaxy 5 but a college does.
