The basic answer is to put links to folders on the appropriate pages.
Much of this can be done in the template DTML methods the PTK installs 
in your PTK folder.  

If you'd like users to be able to create folders then you need to
define a new content type, which is a bit more work.  I'd start
looking at how the existing content types are implemented in PTKBase.
This should change fairly soon to a simpler way.  Unfortunately it may 
not be compatible.

If you're willing to deal with the current development state of the
PTK you should be able to do what you described in it.
