Can two people have different log ins to an FTP on a server 2000 machine, and have separate folders?

I have a windows 2000 server.    Cureently i have a log in to my FTP  function. I would like to give my accountant access to, but onyl to a specified folders.....

How would that be accomplished.
Currently , when i log in, the software brings me to Inetpub\ftproot......
I woul dlike his log in to bring him to a different folder... called " accountant"

Any help appreciated

You should be able to do something with permissions, i've done it before, but it's been a few years. you would need to drop his folder into the ftproot folder, give him the special permission to list folder contents, remove all others, and then give him access to his folder only.  he would be able to see the stuff saved in the ftp root, but would not be able to access anythign but his own folder.

Yes, there are options to do this in the properties tab of the ftp site in IIS, you can assign a home folder for each user.
