Shortcut to FTP site that opens in Windows Explorer, not Internet Explorer.

I'm attempting to put a shortcut to a remote FTP site which will open in WINDOWS EXPLORER, not IE. I can put the string for our ftp login into the address bar in Windows Explorer and it opens perfectly, but there doesn't seem to be a way to place a shortcut on the desk so our users don't have to copy and paste the string whenever they need to login to the site (we're using the external FTP for off-site large file transfers).
Any help would be appreciated!

Create a newshortcut
where it says "type the location of the item"  type explorer.exe ftp://ftp.whateverfpt.com
where whatever ftp.com is the name of the ftpsite.

or if you know the username you are logging in as
type explorer.exe ftp://username@ftp.whateverfpt.com

Wow, I feel dumb. I had a very complex string that was hindering this. Thanks!
