Here's a video on youtube demonstrating it - I'm sure there are others as well.

A yo is just like making a stitch except the R needle isn't inserted into a stitch on the L needle. So for a purl to purl YO, the yarn is in the front, take it over the top of the needle, then down and bring it through the tips to the front again.
