Go to list settings and scroll down to columns and click add new column.
Or you mean you want this field auto populated with the users full name?

Same difference
Do you simply want a new field/column in your tasks list so that people can enter their full name?
If so then my original post is how to do this.

Either choose "single line of text" and have people type it in or choose "people picker" and then you can type in the users login name and tick the box to have this resolved to their "display name" e.g. this will turn domain/johns into John Smith.
The people picker options assumes that your sharepoint is plugged into active directory

I created a time off workflow from the instruction of this link

http://everydaytechstuff.wordpress.com/2010/11/24/creating-a-vacation-request-workflow-in-sharepoint-designer/

When I create my workflow, I have a field called Full Name, so I want to add this field to my task list.

So you just want to add a new column to the list. Go ahead using what I posted originally
