OK, should be fairly easy:
[code]
$dir = '/home/username/directory'; // this is your first folder
if(!$handle = opendir($dir)) // Check the folder can be opened
{
echo "Error: Directory could not be opened.";
exit; // If not, terminate the script
}

echo "<form><select name=\"dir_list\">"; // Start the drop-down menu

while(false !== ($file = readdir($handle))) // Loop through each entry in the folder
{
$fp = $dir . '/' . $file;
if($file == '.' || $file == '..' || !is_dir($fp)) // Ignore current (.) and previous (..) directory entries and anything that isn't a directory
{
continue;
}

echo "<option>$file</option>"; // Stick the directory into the drop-down menu

}
closedir($handle); // Close the directory
echo "</select></form>"; // Finish off the menu
[/code]
