FTP via IIS Windows 2000

We have 2 separate directories that 2 different ftp users will need to access.  I have already setup 2 Virtual Directories, each with their respective directories.

What settings do I need to configure for "Default FTP" in IIS?  We used to use that one, when we only had 1 user FTP in.  But now that there are 2, the configuration is slightly different now.

Thanks for the help.

The user will connect to their home directory as long as their is either a real or virtual directory which matches their username under the root of the ftp server.  If using an FTP client or IE this will take them straight there but if the ftp session specifies a directory then it will go there, i.e.

ftp://server/ will take you to root directory   ftp://server will take you to home directory as far as I remember
