Should be rather straightforward:

- Add the sources.list line mentioned in the repository to your
  /etc/apt/sources.list, for debian/stable that's:

  deb http://people.debian.org/~ths/toolchain/current etch/

- apt-get update
- apt-get install gcc-4.1-mips-linux-gnu

- In your www.linux-mips.org source tree, compile with e.g.
  make CROSS_COMPILE=mips-linux-gnu- oldconfig
  make CROSS_COMPILE=mips-linux-gnu- all
