Many people have done this before.  See a couple of links below.  Also
Linux MIPS HOWTO gives an overview on making cross tools, although 
it is little bit outdated.

I recommand using the tools distributed in Journeyman edition from MontaVista Software. (Of course, I am biased.
:-0) You can get tools at 

     ftp://ftp.mvista.com/pub/Journeyman/cd/cd1/mips_fp_le/ 

Here is a list of RPMS packeges you should install to do kernel cross development work: 

     hhl-host-hardhatutils-1.14-hhl2.0.3.i386.rpm 
     hhl-cross-mips_fp_le-binutils-2.10.91.0.2-hhl2.0.2.i386.rpm 
     hhl-cross-mips_fp_le-cpp-2.95.3-hhl2.0.3.i386.rpm 
     hhl-cross-mips_fp_le-gcc-2.95.3-hhl2.0.3.i386.rpm 
     hhl-cross-mips_fp_le-gdb-5.0-hhl2.0.8.i386.rpm 

To develop applications, you need to install additional packages. 

     hhl-mips_fp_le-glibc-2.2.3-hhl2.0.8.mips_fp_le.rpm (under apps/ directory, install with "--ignorearch"
     option) 
     hhl-cross-mips_fp_le-g++-2.95.3-hhl2.0.3.i386.rpm 

There are also some other distributions. [HELP]

There is a port of RedHat release to MIPS. You can find native development tools there.
