The file UPGRADE describes the upgrade procedure. In short: drop in the 
new files and run maintenance/update.php.

I would also recommend upgrading to a current PHP 5.1 release, 
particularly if you're running on a 64-bit platform. The old 5.0.x 
releases have known bugs on platforms where long and int are different 
sizes, which will break various bits of MediaWiki.
