You could write some software using the File watcher class http://www.freevbcode.com/ShowCode.asp?ID=4841 and then extend it to include its own FTP client http://www.freevbcode.com/ShowCode.asp?ID=4655

we could do that on visual studio 6.0

Yes, you can do that.  

When you create the project, just specify the URL to the production server and that will be its deployment location.  

The only hitch is that you have to have the production environment configured to allow this.  By default, it has to be able to see \\hostname\wwwroot$ and your login has to have access to it.  If not, it will bring up a dialog for you to configure it when it fails.  The wizard will walk you through the rest.
