Is the "New Folder with Selection" a Lion-only feature, or will it work in Snow Leopard? I can't seem to make it happen in my slightly older OS. I've been looking for this feature for a long time.

Some corrections and additions: Renaming files is done with the return key, and opening files is done with command + o. As every windows user experienced at least once, that avoids opening multiple files by accident with the return key. Creating a new folder is done with command + shift + n, like our friend above said.
