You should just do what Deadfett did. He went into this one cold, having only read the wiki pages for the previous games to get the story.
This is by far the best MG game so far.
But incase you're interested, the chronology:
Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater (PS2)
Metal Gear (MSX2)
Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake (MSX2)
Metal Gear Solid (PS1)
Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (PS2)
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (PS3)
Only MGS1 and 2 are really necessary for the gist of the story, though.
MGS3 is a prequel set in the 60's, and the two original games for MSX are just backstory that don't really have much bearing on the story.
It's by far the most epic, and tragic story I think I've ever seen/played.. maybe in any format, film or game.
