You can use FileSystemObject. Here is an example using VBScript:

Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
fs.CreateFolder("c:\myfolder")

It might be because FileSystemObject doesn't come with IIS. I've also installed Windows Scripting Host, try surf to www.microsoft.com/scripting and install WSH.
I've just looked at MSDN and it says that FileSystemObject is an add-on, so I guess that WSH will install it.
