afraid you cannot. can you become root?
First disconnect from any network, login as root (if cannot and don't know how, hit Ctrl-Alt-F2 (e.g.) and type in
PHP Code:
sudo passwd root 
to create a root password.

Then login as root and use the commands
PHP Code:
useradd -m xxxxxx 
to add a user and his home folder, then
PHP Code:
passwd xxxxxx 
You could then delete the olduser and his home folder if you want by
PHP Code:
userdel -r olduser 
I've done it, too. C'est la vie!
