I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Rather than recreating the wheel here is a Microsoft document in regards to setting up Windows 2003 as an ftp server.

You create users just like you would a normal user in Windows (so either in Active Directory Users & Computers or Computer Mangement if not on a domain)

That being said I would actually recommend using Filezilla server.  It so much more simple to set up and manage.  it also seems to be more compatible with FTP clients in my experience... Windows FTP server can sometimes just behave strangely...

Is this FTP server going to be used for internal use only, or are you going to have external users connecting to it?

If you are planning to have external users connecting to it I would recommend that you purchase a software that is capable of running SFTP so that the usernames/passwords/data are transmitted in an encrypted packet instead of clear text.

Also here is another setup guide that goes into more detail. Along with how to lock down the directories for users access instead of allowing anonymous access.
