Hi,

in the documentation to FindMinimum you'll find at least the names of the methods (at 'more information', last paragraph) and a few examples int the 'examples/options/method' section of that page.

If you follow the links in the upper right corner of the help window you will be led to more detailed tutorials.

hope that helps,
Peter

P.S.: as a quick reminder how to write the method's name (upper/lower cases etc), try specifying a nonexistent method:

FindMinimum[{x, x >= 0}, x, Method -> "foo"]
;-)
