Creating a User to view all FTP users Folders

I am using IIS 6 and have created an FTP server that is accessible by users. I have set the users up as local users and when they log into the site they are placed in FTPRoot/LocalUser/customer folder.
The customer folder is the same as the LocalUser Name so that when they log in they are automatically placed into that folder. That all seems to be working fine.
The question I have now is how do I create a single user that can view all the customers folders when they log in? I have tried creating an admin and giving them rights to all folders but that does not seem to be correct.

Thanks

you need to create a virtual directory in IIS and give then when your "main" user logs in, they will simply go to /"virtual directory name" - so your virtual directory should be something like the "FTP ROOT" or "LOCAL USERS" folder.  Hope that makes sense.  I can explain further if needed.
