Default Was trying to create Folder programatically in a Doc Library

HI All

I was trying to create Document librray programatically in a Sharepoint Site and is not working for me.I was trying to implement this as an Event Handler.
The aim of the code is to create a Folder with the same name as in folder which has been added.For eg if i am creating a folder titled A in a Doc library called A1 then I shud have a folder names A(programatically) in a document library called as 'Request for Proposals' (this is predifened)
below is the piece of code.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using Microsoft.SharePoint;

namespace folderprog
public class folder:SPItemEventReceiver
SPSite site;
SPWeb web;

public override void ItemAdded(SPItemEventProperties properties)


site = new SPSite("http://a2ms04866:6000/presales");
web = site.OpenWeb();
SPListItem mainitem = properties.ListItem;
string fname=Convert.ToString (mainitem ["Name"]);

SPList list = web.Lists["Request For Proposal"];
if (list.EnableFolderCreation != true)
list.EnableFolderCreation = true;
string url = "http://a2ms04866:6000/presales/Request%20For%20Proposal";

list.Folders.Add(url , SPFileSystemObjectType.Folder, fname);
