Thanks for the suggestions. I made the changes you suggested, but continued 
to get the same error with whatever URL I tried. What URL do you think might 
work?

The tilde is a unix short-cut. I don't think it'll work with vista...
Try using the complete path to your home dir in UserDir, eg:

UserDir  "C:/Users/Lamartin/My Website"

Also, change the "Enabled" key word to "enabled" in case this is not
case-insensitive.
