How do you mean? Do you mean how to find the md5 checksum of something? You can just run the 'md5sum' command. If you are distributing something (say, an ISO or something), it is traditional to run md5sum on all of the contents of your package, and redirect the output to a file called MD5SUM. Then people can use the 'md5sum -c MD5SUM' command to automatically check all the files to ensure integrity.
If you meant how to actually implement the MD5 algorithm, well, Wikipedia has a good explanation:

I'm sure you could find other online resources as well.
