I think my first question would be:

If they're not tech savy enough to be able to navigate to the proper directory - what are you giving them FTP access for??  FTP is powerful enough that they could do some serious damage to a website - deleting, renaming, or overwriting the wrong files. 

If they can't figure out what directory they are in - do you trust them with the site's files?  Or do you trust them with the other user's files (like their mbox file)??
