Hi,

Adding a new attribute to user is also call "extending the Schema". for this you first need to register the schema so that you can view and edit in schema.

run the command : regsvr32 schmmgmt.dll

then run MMC and open schema console. Modification in schema is higly risky task till you could not understand that what you are doing or what you are going to perform.
Please fo through the url completely then proceed.
