I'm a total noob to photography, but use a small ....hole thingie, so it won't take too much light. That combined with a very slow shutter should do it.
Oh, and use a tripod too, of course. :p

Yes a tripod is needed (or atleast some flat object to sit your camera on) . You will need a large aperature...maybe like a 5.0 or even seven 7.0. You will need a slow shutter speed...something around 1 to 4 (+) seconds. For a "creamy effect" i would lower the contrast and sharpness of your camera. I would probably use black and white or a sepia. A color photo would be harder to pull off. Also your camera should be on ISO 100. But you could go maybe 200 or 400 depending on how you want your image to look.

What kinda water is this?? If its a large waterfall (or similar) then you really dont need to adjust anything (use an automatic mode) cause the water is traveling so fast it will naturally give you a creamy effect. If its like high tide on a beach or something...then i would change all the settings!

Hopefully thats kinda helpful. I havent set up a water shot for this kind of effect....but those settings (which you will have to experiment with...) would be my best guess.
