Probably the command aren't in your PATH, Type "echo $PATH" and "locate useradd" to see your PATH and the location of the useradd command, respectively. Note that if you're getting to a root prompt via su you won't get root's PATH, which includes administrative command directories, unless you do "su -" (note the trailing dash). Do a search on the PATH environment variable -- there are many threads on this.
