Rebooted the computer with the LiveCD

Once rebooted, I went to a terminal (ctrl+alt+F1), and logged in with root via

$ sudo su

Then I created a mount point under mnt:

$ mkdir /mnt/local

...and mounted the local hard drive there.

$ mount /dev/sda2 /mnt/local

(the location of the hard drive might vary in your install; I used
fdisk -l to figure it out.)

Then I edited /mnt/local/etc/group and re-added deguser to the admin group.

Only took me half an hour to figure it out. My Google fu is mighty.
