    You can goto the Admin Control Panel : Attachments > Attachment Storage Type > And follow the instructions - I think you also need to make a chmod 777 dir on your server (best is outside of the public dir) and set this dir in the vBulletin options section , so it knows where to throw it in.

      This server is running windows 2000 adv server and does not have chmod abilities.. How do I do it with windows 2000?

        Okay just in case someone else has this problem...
        Before upgrading I had the "attachments as files" hack installed and it worked perfectly.... After the upgrade I was unable to move my attachments into the ftp as I kept getting the unable to read/write error. My server was unable to help.

        So I cheated ... here is what I did:

        I first made my attachment directory and CHMOD to 777, I then made a folder called "test" (inside my attach directory) and CHMOD to 777 I then created a blank file called "test.attach" and uploaded it to the "test" folder and CHMOD that to 777... ran the attachment storage to change from database to ftp and it ran perfectly... all files are there and are accessibe and deleteable (if that is a word??)
