How do I add an new column in Nautilus?

I'd like to add a column "Date Created" to Nautilus.

I reckon I'll need to compose some script which I've never done before, so I'll be very grateful for assistance.

You will not be able to do that in any easy fashion at all. The creation date is not an attribute that *nix stores, so there is no way to get it. You have access and modification times but not creation.

You could create a system which uses extended attributes and is specialized for your environment... if you need it. But it's going to be much more than a simple script.
