I don't have experience with the official toolchain, but if it's like other that I've used, you will have to:

1. Uncompress to the root of your filesystem (check if the directories make sense; there are some toolchains that are supposed to be uncompressed into /usr or in /opt).

2. Include/source a script prior to cross-compiling programs, so it sets the right environment variables so that it uses your cross-compiler (the one in the toolchain) correctly

3. Call the configure scripts of the programs you want to port with the appropiate parameters so that you cross-build. If you are doing programs from scratch, you have to do a Makefile with the proper "CC=name-of-the-crosscompiler", etc

Anyway, Matthijs said in another post that they were using Ubuntu, so it you find some library version mismatch, the easiest way would be installing a Ubuntu distribution...

If you want more specific help, for (1) post here the complete pathnames of some of the files in the toolchain archive, for (2), search for a file named "gcc-*" in the toolchain archive and with that I can say you the proper environment variables, and for (3), if you want an example makefile, with the information from (1) and (2) I can post one here ;-).
