Why don't you use terminal or console? Press Ctrl+Alt+F1 and provide username root and the appropriate password.
Then run the following command to create a new user:
Quote:
#useradd username;passwd username
Provide password for the new user, and you are done.
To go back to GUI, Press Ctrl+Alt+F7.

That's a good way to do it; if you don't like to do it that way and want to use a graphical method you best tell us which distro, which desktop and their versions ...

Well, if you want to do it in GUI:
Go to System>Administration>Users and Groups (Assuming you are using Fedora and GNOME)

But according to me, CLI is more fun.
