    start "Internet Information Services Manager".
    right click "FTP Sites" -> New -> FTP Site
    Next -> "EnterYourFTPSiteNameHere" -> Next ->(Choose your Interface and/or) Next -> Choose "Isolate Users" or "Isolate Users using Active Directory" -> Next -> Choose your Home-Root -> Next -> Finish :)

    Maybe I should start a new thread but now I am getting authentication errors logging onto the ftp server...  any suggestions..?

    I did the above using isolate users using active directory and made sure a home directory was set.

    Thanks

    This mode authenticates user credentials against a corresponding Active Directory container, rather than searching the entire Active Directory, which requires large amounts of processing time. Specific FTP server instances can be dedicated to each customer to ensure data integrity and isolation. When a user's object is located within the Active Directory container, the msIIS-FTPRoot and msIIS-FTPDir properties are extracted to provide the full path to the user's home directory. If the FTP service can successfully access the path, the user is placed within the home directory, which represents the FTP root location. The user sees only their FTP root location and is, therefore, restricted from navigating higher up the directory tree. The user is denied access if either the msIIS-FTPRoot or msIIS-FTPDir property do not exist, or, if these two together do not form a valid and accessible path.

    this means, you have to set the msIIS-FTPRoot and msIIS-FTPDir properties for the AD Container you choosed.

    i reread and saw my fault, you have to set these properties on the user object,
    and no, not anonymous.
    you must have a valid AD account with properties set.
    and you have to give them permissions to the directories they want access.
    but you are right, another ftp server will be the better(easier) choice.
