    Well, you need a camera that has shutter priority mode to start with.

    Generally I think smaller apertures are better for long-exposure, as you want to control the amount of light getting in. You might also look at using filters, such as a Neutral Density one.

    Check out 'Digital Photography School' on google for some articles on this, I know they have some really good ones.

    Hope that helps and sorry for the late reply!

    Invest in a good tripod!!! Cheap ones are susceptible to the slightest vibrations that will show up in your images.

    Also if you're using Canon's P&S, you can use the custom firmware CHDK that will allow you to take really long exposure photos, among other things.

    Neutral Density filter is usually a must, as well.
