Solo- Part 1- This is the actual method used by tom morello described 
in an interview.  Tom has a defected pickup in his custom ibanez here 
and can turn that pickup on and off with a knob.  He selects the 
defected knob and uses a wah wah to give it a rythem, he describes the 
sound as termites with teeth and the wah wah gives them chomp.  I dont 
know if it is possible to put on a broken pickup onto your guitar and 
do this, so,if you play along with the record, just play the main riff.

Part 2 of solo- Tom uses a guitar with 2 volume knobs(lots of guitars 
have this feature)and turns the neck pickup to zero and the bridge 
pickup to 10.  By flicking the toggle switch, initially your turning on 
and off the guitar.  This to is an actual method used by tom, he hits 
the low E string while flicking his toggle switch very fast, then he 
hits the 17th fret of the D string followed by the 19th on the G 
string, then back to the toggle, then the 19th fret on G, then toggle, 
then 19th on G, then toggle, then 19th on G followed by 17th on D, then 
17th on D followed by 19th on G followed by 17th on D followed by 19th 
on G followed by 20 on B.

P.S.-Anyone who plays a strat or a type of guitar like that, if you 
wanna do the toggle switch thing, just remove the mid. pickup, be sure 
to move the wires and connect them to the neck pickup so your guitar 
will still work but be able to turn it on and off, if this is confusing 
or you dont know anything about wireing guitars, take it to a repair 
guy and tell him what you want done, it will cost about 20 dollars, 
good luck!
