Cadd9 as a power chord looks like this:

D|-12-
A|-10-
E|-8--


You just add the second instead of the octave. It sounds pretty good, I use these a lot.
That's actually a Csus2 chord. While it can add some flavor to a power chord riff, it is not always a direct substitute for C5!

Right, I knew that, I just got them mixed up. Here's a Cadd9:

G|-9--
D|-12-
A|-10-
E|-8--


The difference is that Csus2 has no third.

The poster above you gave you the tab for a Cadd9 chord. That's where your fingers go, quite obviously.
