I am not sure about the aliasing FTP and WWW, but we are using
variable strings to setup a users home directory. We simply went in and
made a directory called users and specified the $USERNAME string in the
home directory path in the User Manager. More precisely, I have a
Default User account setup with the string c:\users\$USERNAME. When I
copy the Default User account to an account called for instance mine,
the string will automatically create the c:\users\mine directory. I
believe the default permissions on such a directory are Full Control by
the user (in this case MINE), and Read by Everybody.
I hoped this helped a little,
