However, when I get to the part where it says to click "add ftp publishing to website", the option is not visible in the IIS management console.

I've verified that the "FTP Publishing Service" is installed in the server manager, and I can see it running in the services applet and via netstat -a.

As I said, "add FTP publishing" doesn't show in the actions pane in iis manager, though the service is installed and running. – David Lively Nov 22 '10 at 23:08
