Secure FTP access for domain users

Hello
We have an FTP site on IIS (Windows 2003) that does not allow anonymous logon. Users have to enter their domain account names and passwords to enter site (which then takes them to their virtual folder directly, based on their account name)
At present, they have to enter their user name as domain/user. Is there a way to configure IIS so that the prefix domain/ is not required.
The users just enter their user name?

Thanks

Error message in IIS: "530 User <Username> cannot log in. Login failed."
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/200475

Read the IIS 6.0 section
Adsutil Set MSFTPSVC/DefaultLogonDomain "Domain Name"

FYI - your usernames and password are still sent over the Internet  (if this is across the inet ) as clear text - which is bad. Windows 2008 has ftp/SSL, other products to ftp/ssl as well. another answer is encrypt the data.
