I've always wanted to know how to do it with my Canon A95 Powershot and I could never figure it out. Could someone explain it to me in idiot prooft terminology so I can execute this simple technique?

Thanks in advance.

exactly what do you mean by "foamy"? I guess you could add detergent to the water . . . ;)
(seriously, not sure what effect you're looking for)

Ugh! That's one of my pet hates. People love to make water look like milk. I prefer water to look like water.

Ok. The answer to your question - a long shutter speed and a small aperture.

So your question has already been answeared by Rhys, but I have to agree with him in what he said about that "milk-look". In some pictures it could look nice but IMHO generally water should look like water. :)
