[edit reason] Let's stick to the authorities on this one please, otherwise we'll have a spam fest [/edit]
Somewhat true, but if it's a new site and not linked anywhere, an SE will never find it. Also, directories don't have bots looking for sites. You have to submit to them for a review and inclusion.
Getting listed in major directories (DMOZ, Yahoo) first will increase your chances of getting spidered, but this can take a while and cost $$$.
Try getting some related websites to link back to you, too.
