Some of the more important modules for your task are probably
- os: http://www.python.org/doc/2.3.4/lib/module-os.html
- os.path: http://www.python.org/doc/2.3.4/lib/module-os.path.html
- win32 extensions: https://sourceforge.net/projects/pywin32/

You should visit the Python Cookbook 
(http://aspn.activestate.com/ASPN/Python/Cookbook/), which is also 
available in book form.
