You can follow the instructions on the official Moonlight website. Go here.

In short, the steps are:

  1. Download the latest version (3.99 as of now) since you are using Debian Sid.
  2. Iceweasel (or Epiphany) may give you a security warning. Basically, you need to allow http://www.go-mono.com to install add-ons. So, change the options so that this is possible.

And you are done!

Novel Moonlight could not be installed because its not compatible with Iceweasel 5.0 – Grzenio Sep 27 '11 at 11:06
@Grzenio, are you able to install the stable version (2.4)? I'll try this out on my Squeeze machine later and let you know more... – rigved Sep 30 '11 at 11:33
