[PATCH] setup.exe: mkdir.cc. was: setup.exe crash

Here is a solution for this problem. Please, review.

To reproduce the crash write manually a path with non-existent drive
in the local package directory edit control.

The reason for this crash is that mkdir_p tries to create the path
recursevly and does not care if its actually a path component or a
drive spec.

I've tried a setup.exe with this patch applied and with very long path
and it works just fine.

===8<==============Original message text===============
I have setup.exe point to a local network mapping for its local Package
I noticed when I rebooted, not having the mapping set up to reconnect, that
setup.exe crashed when it tried to move on from that screen with the
following error;
"The exception unknown software exception (0xc00000fd) occurred in the
application at location 0x77f7f12a.
That was the only trouble its given me.

setup.exe version
Wint4 sp6a
