   >I have recently learnt of the os.listdir() function, and I intend to experiment with it using a cgi-page (html). I would like to have a base directive show all the files and folders, so that the user can browse through it all. 
   >Now, listdir() returns both the files and folders in one big mess, so I am wondering if there is some ListFolderInDir() function or similar within python that I should use, if so what is its name and location.

There is a function called os.walk (not os.path.walk) that returns a tuple of,
(dirpath, dirnames, filenames)
