You don't add it to FTP.  FTP server from IIS uses the same accounts database that you have for logins.

Ah, I believe you have to modify the security policy to log on locally for the FTP group (or user, if you want to do it that way).  I had a similar problem with Web Services.  Note - when you change security policies, you'll need to reboot.

An account is an account.  Just create it in Active Directory or in computer management if you are not using active directory.

Then, you HAVE to be using NTFS (not FAT or FAT32) on the file system that you want to make available via FTP.  Then you assign permissions to the folders and files there.  For administrative purposes, it's best to setup groups that contain the user accounts and assign permissions to the group.
