[NTISP] FTP ignorance causing major headaches!

I am having a problem with my FTP server and was wondering if anyone had
encountered this particular problem before.

I am running IIS4 and have installed a www and an ftp site for a number of
domains. Under sharing in the ftp site I have removed anonymous access and
added a user with the sitename (user name) and password. In user manager
for NT I have created a user (sitename) and password and added them to the
domain users group. When trying to ftp into the site, the user name and
password are both accepted, but permission to access is denied.

Here's the weird part:

While troubleshooting I added domain admin group to the user profile, it
worked great. Could ftp fine, upload and download great. On a whim I tried
to ftp into another site...that also worked...needless to say, I removed
domain admin group from the user profile, problem is, I could still access
both sites that I had accessed while the admin group was in the profile. I
could no longer access any new domains, but in order to remove the access
from both domains, I had to delete the user profile and start over.

My question is: Have I missed something? What exactly are the steps I need
to take in order to ftp into a site with IIS4? Do I need to share the
directory? I'm sure it's something simple, but I can't seem to figure it

Thank you for any suggestions you might have.
