yes, make the user a normal user. and in your FTP server settings, specify the path to the home folder for the user. The user should be able to connect. you can set up FTP folders etc using your IIS manager.

if you are using any third party FTP server s/w , you can create an username and pw in that and then specify a home folder. and it doesn't interfere with Windows user accounts.

1) Install the FTP - configure NTFS security for the users.  
2) Copy the startup shortcut from
    C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users.

That's it... when it opens Local will default to user's C:\; they can U/L to where ever they want.

Is this machine a Domain Controller?  If so you will need to grant this account the right to log on locally in your Domain Controller security policy.
