Ok, well just take a tapping riff (eruption sequence) and practice it. Your fingers will develop and you'll be able to play longer. Trills and proper scale practice also build up strenth in all fingers.

id say the best way is to tap for long periods of time

Make sure your getting every note out of it that you should be. Did you practice it slow before you sped up? If your doing it incorrectly, it won't sound as fast or as good because your missing notes.

If you do it enough, your middle finger will get callused and it will be a lot easier.

just tap with all kinds of patterns all over the fretboard, try to go through all the strings, have fun, be creative and don't be sloppy.

break your picking hand... that's how I learned to tap... seriously

i was having trouble tapping too before i got into some of Ozzy's stuff with Randy Rhoads. the crazy train solo and that tapping part from "Flying High Again" helped me build up some finger strength as i played them

(tapping starts at :17)

just keep playing stuff, i would encourage you to use your pinky on the fretting hand to help build up strength on it so you will actually use it but that might be restrictive

rock on! tap that axe

Tapping is one of those things you can get decent at in a day, but takes years to master it. So just practice REAAL slow at first, then build up speed slowly.
