Something like this should work...
% ls -l /home
drwxr-xr-x 2 1007 1007 92 Aug 5 2007 jim/
% sudo adduser --uid 1007 --gid 1007 --no-create-home jim
Then again, I think adduser might work without the option for
home. Just be sure to specify the same uid/gid as your existing
data, to make sure the user has access to their files.
