Itro solo is good one to learn, and the last solo is good if you are looking for something more difficult.

Pretty much every metallica solo, here are my favs:
(easiest to hardest)
Enter Sandman
Fade to black
Call of Ktulu
Master of puppets
One
Ride the Lightning
Gibson SG Standard
Ibanez S2170FB
Peavey JSX
Marshall 1960A
TEXAS A&M

Well what helped me when I first started wasn't learning solos. Learning solos really doesn't teach you the way it works... in my experience anyway. What you need to do is learn your scales and arpeggios. Get a scale book or look up scales online. Once you learn a few scales write a rythem riff and then solo on those scales you learned in the key to your rythem riffs. Basically you just need to learn the shapes. You don't have to learn them in every key because when you change positions you change keys. If you've got an ear for music most of the time you will be able to hear when your solo is in key or not. And sometimes going off key can even sound right and in passing notes. So play the scales you learned in different positions until it sounds right. Write one part at a time slowly and then you'll end up with a great solo. Of course it takes time. But if you learn someone elses solos you really don't know how they made that up or went about putting it together.

yes solos are created in parts. Not many people write the entire solo as one. They think of it as parts. Kindof like writing 4 riffs in a song. You're just writing maybe 4 lead parts and putting them together as a solo. A lot of times tabs online aren't even close to right too so they don't sound right.

^^offcourse. That how everybody does it. Learn phrase by phrase, grip by grip. First slowly, then speed up. Then past it all together. You also might considder a metronome, but if you are rythmically stable, thats not a must.
