Default IIS and FTP

What do you mean by: "log on Locally" privilege? Is this in the user
accounts area?

Yes - every user has privileges assigned to them (or denied them) - and "log
on locally" is one such privilege. It needs to be enabled to allow the user
to log on to the machine (i.e. walk up to it and hit "Ctrl-Alt-Del" and enter
their username), and also to allow the user to access that machine through an
FTP server that uses the Windows user database.

By doing this, will it allow me to access my home
computer on the ftp port?

Well, you'll also need an FTP server running!

Also, what is IIS?

IIS is Internet Information Server - mostly, it's used as a web server, but it
also has limited support for gopher and FTP.

I've always used third
party FTP programs, because it was all I've known, but if Microsoft
has something built in for this, that would be much better. If there
is a knowledge base article on this, I would appreciate a pointer.

The article most frequently referred to around here for IIS FTP primer is
http://www.iisfaq.com/ftp. Personally I don't know that I'd describe IIS's
FTP support as "much better" than third party programs, but that could have
something to do with me being the developer of two of those third party
programs, WFTPD and WFTPD Pro. Some third party FTP servers have their own
user database (WFTPD & WFTPD Pro, for example), and some third party FTP
servers can use the Windows user database; IIS only allows you to use the
Windows user database.
