How to create a virtual FTP directory

We are running Win2k and IIS 5.0. I have Web authors who access a site for development Q&A, typically through SharePoint....

I now have someone who can only use FTP to get in and needs access to the same folders/directories. How can I link up the Q&A site directories so they appear in his FTP listings? Create a virtual FTP directory that maps to the directory in SharePoint. This article provides detailed instructions: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=239120.

You can skip the section on creating the user account if the user already has one.
