to create a directory, you need to have both write (w) AND execute (x) permissions in the parent directory. Whereever you are, you can check the parent using "ls -l .."

Please don't ask for immediate help, "as soon as possible", etc. We're all volunteers, and questions get answered whenever there is someone awake that knows the answer........
