You may have seen my other thread about HTTP on a different port, which is very helpful when your internet service provider blocks port 80. THANKS to all for the help, worked out prefectally!

now, i want to set up a ftp server, pretty easy. But how do you change the directory? I want to create a folder lets say "FTP" and only allow that folder to be used instead of my entire directory.

also how do you change the port for FTP, just in case my ISP blocks it, which i don't think it does.

How about an FTP only account? I'm still reading the article myself, but here's the link.

I just finished reading the article and it sounds like just what you need.
