If you are wanting to choose the path, then you will probably need a plugin like Troi File collect a user's path choice, then save it into a variable. Then create a calculated Applescript in your FileMaker script step which inserts the variable into your calculated Applescript.
It is important for calculated Applescripts that you introduce the '¶' character at the end of each 'line' in the Applescript. If you want to see how I do these do a document search for the tag 'ronsmithmd' and look at the one I have for dialing Skype directly from a FileMaker script.

This doesn't directly answer your request, but I think you will find information that can get you closer.
This link may be more to the point:
Sounds like you are wanting to do a calculated applescript. With a calculated applescript you can use variables to set the folder paths.

Thank all you for the replies!
The answer perfectly described in this link http://www.filemakerhacks.com/?p=2805
Thank you Marc for the tip.
The script should look:
do shell script "mkdir -p 'volumes/Macintosh HD/Users/User1/MySolution/Backup/Friday/'".
With the calculated AppleScript it is easy change path using variables.
