By admin screen, you mean the screen where you access the blogs and
modify them right?

That's what you're wanting it to do as long as everything else is
working correctly.  All you need to do is modify your httpd.conf file to
change the DirectoryIndex of movabletype to mt.cgi.

Change your config to the one below and it should work (it's the same
one you have already, just with the DirectoryIndex directive added):

<Location /movabletype/>
DirectoryIndex mt.cgi
SetHandler perl-script
PerlHandler Apache::Registry
Options +ExecCGI
PerlSendHeader On
allow from all
