help.search("directory") would have given you:

R.home(base)            Return the R Home Directory
files(base)             File and Directory Manipulation
getwd(base)             Get or Set Working Directory
list.files(base)        List the Files in a Directory/Folder
unlink(base)            Delete Files and Directories

and then ?files would have told you there's dir.create() and how to use it.
