In order to fight this boss you first have to find the Covenant "Blade of the Darkmoon"
Gaist Heidegger has a great guide on how to accomplish that

The Covenant: Blade of the Darkmoon achievement in Dark Souls worth 49 points
Discover Blade of the Darkmoon covenant. (Secret)

After you get your covenant achievement walk through the fog wall and you will be treated to a cutscene then the boss fight begins.

*note that passing through the fog will break your covenant and turn the Anor Londo firekeeper hostile, killing the boss will lock you out of the "darkmoon blade" miracle for that play-through

Gwyndolin will be at the end of a never-ending corridor and throw 3 different random attacks your way;
he'll raise himself off the ground and fire a few volleys of arrows your way you can raise your shield and defend or you can hide behind the many pillars along the walls,
his second attack he will raise his staff and fire a group of homing magic arrows hide behind the pillars against this attack it will damage you even if your defending,
his third attack he will raise his staff and fire a large magic attack u must doge this it will travel through the pillars.

Once you get close he will teleport down the corridor and continue attacking you.When your a few pillars away dodge his attack then sprint towards him and get a few hits in before he teleports. Fire seemed to do the best against him, a high level pyromancy and chaos fireball should make this fight alot easier.
