The supervisor or (king pin) on unix systems is (almost) always known as
"root" not "admin". The "root" user is created by default. If you entered a 
root password at installation you should be able to gain privileges by
logging in as usr "root" and the root password.

Judging from from your question, I imagine you would be foolish to mess
with the /bin directory until you understand much more of the system.
