I would avoid spaces in filenames/directories at all costs. Linux really does NOT like it. Maybe use capitalization to split words up, but remember when you do that. LInux is case sensitive. Unlike Windows where you can type anything however you want.
edit: You can make directories with spaces (you can do it in the GUI) but you'll save yourself a headache with NO spaces.
2nd edit: try doing cd into the directory where you want to create the new directory and try mkdir dir_name
