One of the first guitar You Tube lessons I watched was this - http://youtu.be/lIh348tnNjo. Brad teaches a basic metal riff. Maybe not your cup of tea, but at the start of the recording he gives a good explanation of palm muting, showing where to put your palm and the effect of different placements.

Update: I find the song Stand By Me, just added by Justin, is a great one for practicing palm muting. Plus it's just a great song. I'm slowly getting this technique down, although I've still got a string ringing out when I don't want it to every now and then.

Derek - great little youtube video might give this one ago myself. The challenges I always have palm muting (and its getting better) is continuing to strum whilst muting. Keeping the palm in contact and strumming is for me difficult.

I always had issues with that, but have recently experimented with how I hold the pick, and it has made a world of difference. Granted, I am one of those weirdos that their thumbs bend back, but still it may be worth experimenting with how you hold it.
