2 ftp folders on one ftp server

I'm running an ftp server with a home directory of d:\ftp.  I want one user to be able to connect to d:\user when he ftp's to the server, but it isn't a sub-folder of d:\ftp.  For various reasons I can't change my default home directory from d:\ftp so I'm wondering if there is any way to run 2 ftp servers on this server or somehow get this one user to go to the folder he needs.

    You can run 2 different sites as long as they are on different ports, etc, you can also run different users into the same directory and give access to another file with one user that another doesn't have.  Are you just using the windows ftp?  Another option would be to put a hidden link in, not show the file and just make it a sub-directory giving access only to that user, etc.

    FTP access to a second port will work for me.  Thanks
