Best way to do it is to either use IIS or purchase a 3rd party ftp server program.  

Basically the faster connection you have, the faster your ftp server will run.  You *could* run it on a modem link, but it'd be dog slow.

You need an IP address that is accessible from the internet  on port 21 (default ftp port) or any other port that you specify.  You can set up port forwarding on your router if you're using a dsl/cable connection and have a private IP address on the inside of the router.  The easiest thing to do is to use a non-private IP address... although it's the least secure.
