Easy if you have physical access to the machine.
Start up and watch for the Grub loading message; the instant this appears
press the Esc key
which will bring up the Grub menu. From this select the 'Recovery
mode'. This will start you
at a root console.
I haven't double checked as I don't want to add a user to my system right
now, but 'adduser' is
certainly available at the prompt.
