passing a variable to an external program

I want to run an external program using os.system() but I want to
include a variable in the middle of the command line.
An example of the type of thing I want to be able to do:
pathname = os.path.dirname(sys.argv)
os.system('cscript /nologo ' + pathname + '\test.vbs')
When I run this, everything after pathname + seems to be ignored. Is
this just incorrect syntax or am I trying to do something fundamentally
wrong? Is there a better way to do something like this? I'm trying to
move from perl to python and this is my first attempt at python.
