Well... you can make a very simple shell script that will create the date in the format you want and after that run that script weekly via crontab.
The script should be something like this:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
#
mydate = `date "+%m%d%Y"`
mkdir date

In the crontab file you should add something like this:
Code:
15      4       *       *       6       root    /path/to/the/script
