FTP and IIS 6

OK - so I'm taking over our hosted FTP, and the previous admin is not able to assist.  What we have is a single 'site' and multiple virtual directories under it.  I think each is a separate 'site' by username.  I'm not too sure if this is in isolation mode or not (is tehre an easy way to tell?)

So, I'm setting up a new site.  What I have done:
1. Create a new directory  under \ftproot\NEWSITE.  I then created a local user "NEWSITE" and this user only has permissions to the "NEWSITE" folder and has full rights there.

Now, my question - how do I have the server automatically dump the user into the "NEWSITE" folder?  i thought that it would do it by username automatically...

for IIS 6 look for metabase under c:\windows\system32\inetsrv\
copy it some other location and open it with nodepad
look for "UserIsolationMode" and see what is its value. For Isolation enabled it should be '2'.
