Do you have a line in your configuration like the following:

    UserDir "C:/documents and settings/*/my documents/public_html"

If so, I think the following URL will work:

Acutally you can replace '~foreman.wtsn' with 'Anything', as long as 
'Anything' exists under

    C:/documents and settings/


    the directory 'Anything' has subdirectory 'my documents/public_html'.

If you insist on using '~foreman' instead of '~foreman.wtsn'-style, you 
may consider using rewrite to implement it.
