Are you having problems with this line :
   Usernames must match regular expression:
If so, its asking what regular expression to use when you enter the user 
id, just hit enter to accept the default. It will ask later for the new 
user id....
Yes, I had this exakt problem, being new to BSD and all. Remember to rm 
/etc/adduser.conf before you go at it again. =)
