I just need them to go right into their own home directory and not be able to browse all over the place... Can anyone help with this? I set their home directory in the ftp account and thought that would do it....

Thank You

you need to create a virtual ftp directory named the same as the ftp username point it to the users web folder
when the ftp user logs in it will push them the away from the root and to the web folder . give the ftp user permissions only to there folder

Oh you are da man!
That puts them right in their directory. Thank You!
But they can still move up into the root...
You know how I can keep them in their dir?
Thanks so much

That's why I use the BulletProof FTP Server rather than IIS. Much easier to maintain and control access.

yes move the main ftp root completely out of the webs folders somewhere which users have no rights and create yourself a virtual FTP to the web root

I agree with txbakers.

For $29.99 bulletproof ftp server is a steal. Much easier administration for admins, what you ask to do is simple and no need to involve NT permissions or create NT user accounts. It also supports ftp resumes for your users.
