How to setup FTP access to my IIS website web folder (multiple sites hosted)

I have IIS install and several sites hosted - using a single IP and multiple headers.
I can ftp to the server but when I login it takes me to the ftpfoot folder
I really want to setup ftp for a couple of accounts so we can ftp to the specific web folder for each web site.

Create a virtual directory under your FTP site which points to the web root of the site(s) in question. Only allow one account access to each virtual directory as you see fit.

I have created this now.
What do I do to setup a login account that will work with this?
