os.mkdir()

Hello again,

I couldn't find a resolution in helpfiles, so please
give a hint to my (easy to solve!?) question:

I'd like to create directories under WinNT. There is 
already a file with the same name as the directory I want
to create.

Look:
>>>os.mkdir("c:\\blabla")
OSError: [Errno 17] File exists: 'C:\\blabla'

or
>>>os.makedirs("c:\blabla\nana\gugu")
produces 
OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'c:\blabla\nana'

Don't know if python doing the same under linux, but I need
to solve the problem for every OS!

I think, there must be an easy solution?!

Ciao,
Holger
