Use the Windows Scripting Host (WSH -http://msdn.microsoft.com/scripting/)

I found this for you from a guy named Patrick:

'create the reference to the Scripting FileSystemObject
This object comes with IIS4 and the latest PWS. It is installed by default.

Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

'first get the folder by passing the path of it.
filespec = "c:\"
Set f = fs.GetFolder(filespec)

'now to deal with subfolders
Set fc = f.SubFolders

'then add your folder
fc.Add "tempfolder"

I have an app that exposes all the functionality of the filesystemobject. It
mimics Explorer using this object and exposing the filesystem of the web
server. It adds new folders and deletes folders. You can open folders and
view the contents. Just go to my website http://www.santry.com and take the
link to ASP and then WinASP.

I also found a set of functions called ASPFileFunctions. You can download it at www.xs4all.nl/~jarit/asp/
It is 30$ to register

I have no problem acessing http://www.xs4all.nl/~jarit/asp/ 
or the evaluation download page at http://www.xs4all.nl/~jarit/asp/download.html
but then I AM in Holland:

"The easiest way to install the FileFunctions component is to download the easy setup (1.5MB) version. This version includes a user friendly installation program, which automatically installs necessary dll's and registers the component for you.

People who know what they are doing and already have the MSVBVM50.DLL
file (VB5 Service pack 3) on their machine can download the smaller version
(150KB) and register the component by hand by placing the filefunctions.dll
file in their windows system directory and running the command:

regsvr32 filefunctions.dll

RE: WSH:
You can download and install WSH from microsoft and use the example I gave you anyway. It just comes default with IIS4 but the example was not IIS4 specific.
