Problems with os.system and os.environ when calling Python from another program

I have a problem with some os.environ and os.system calls when i execute

a python-program from another program (ColdFusion server) under Windows
NT 4.0.

In the example below it will hang in the os.system call.

import os
print "excute.py"
os.system("dir")
print "execute.py done"

Any way around it?

I am thinking of somehow calling cmd.exe, and then calling my python-
script as a shell-command, but I haven't gotten that to work from
ColdFusion cfexecute.

Thanks!
Olav
