[Help-gsl] Help with Gamma sampling

I'd greatly appreciate some help at finding an algorithm (not a math
package) to sample the
generalized Gamma function defined at the following web site everywhere
in its domain [0, infinity)

I'd just be happy with an algorithm to sample a particular realization
the generalized Gamma function obtained by setting:

Beta = 2
K = 2 
Theta = sqrt(2)*V0)

which generates a Maxwell distribution:  t^3/(2*V0^4)*Exp[-t^2/(2*V0^2)] 

The GSL realization of the Gamma deviate is only for the canonical Gamma
function (2 parameters)

Thank you very much,
