1. make sure you've installed the ftp service by checking  the Add/remove program > windows components in control panel.
2. create a directory in windows explorer.
3. open up Internet Service manager
4. expand you server by click in the plus sign next to it
5. right click on your server and choose:  new > ftp site
6. Follow the wizard (very self explanatory).  Enter in the description of the site; ip address you want to assign to it, home directory, and read/write permission to the directory.
7. to configure, right click on the newly created site and choose properties.
8. you can configure parameters such as; connection message, securities, anonymous access, directory listing style, etc... (again, pretty much self explanatory)

You must remember that other factors such as; DNS and NTFS permission also play an important role in the way you want to configure your ftp site.  You'll need a valid DNS record for the FDQN connection to your site.  NTFS permission, such as; granting the appropriate permission to the IIS process and anonymous accounts (iusr_ %MachineName% and iwan_%MachineName%) to the directory are also important.  Otherwise, it's a pretty simple procedure.
