Setting up FTP site in Windows 2000

I wish to set up FTP so that a group of users have access to a specific
location within my overall FTP site. Lets suppose that I have a
directory on my pc called App1 and I have created a new virtual
directory in my default FTP site that maps to it (therefore to access
it I would navigate to ftp://ipaddress/app1). Now consider the user
group - call it App1FTPUsers. Every member of App1FTPUsers should be
required to login and have read only rights - i.e. they should only be
allowed download files and browse certain folders. Individual members
of App1FTPUsers should only be able to access specific folders, for
example User1 should only be able to access a directory within App1
called User1 (e.g. ftp://ipaddress/app1/user1) and User2 should only be
able to access a directory within App1 called User2 (e.g.
ftp://ipaddress/app1/user2) etc. No member of App1FTPUsers should be
able to access anywhere outside of ftp://ipaddress/app1. Furthermore, I
would like to retain the ability for certain other users ouside of the
App1FTPUsers group (e.g. the local administrator etc.) to write to the
directories involved.

Please could somebody help me with the steps I should take to achieve
this. I have set up the ftp virtual directory but have done nothing
about the security settings i.e. currently the App1FTPUsers group does
not exist, I have Allow Anonymous Connections set to true for my FTP
site, my FTP home directory has Read and Log Visits checkboxes checked
- Write is unchecked. Everyone has full control on all the folders that
are mapped to in ftp://ipaddress/app1. I am using Windows 2000 and IIS
6.0. The FTP server is not a domain controller.
