Can't Set FTP Root to Shared Diectory on Other Server

I'm trying to create a FTP site which utilizes either a mapped disk (Y:) or a path such as \\server2\volume\ as the physical path.  If I set it to this, I get "530 User cannot log in, home directory inaccessible." as an error.  If I set the physical path to c:\inetpub\ftproot\, it works fine.

The directory on server2 is shared and is accessible to all users.  I have Y: mapped for the user who is accessing the FTP server.  

This is FTP 7 on IIS 7 on SBS 2008.  

How/what do I have to do to make this work?

ftp is a service first, so the shared  folder permissions should be set to allow a network service to access it. just a hint from I got when using a shared folder for a backup service.
