If you're using a bash shell, superuser yourself and hit tab:

[neil@t40-n neil]$ su
[root@t40-n neil]#
Display all 2742 possibilities? (y or n) y
[root@t40-n neil]#

Commands are usually in the /bin /sbin /usr/bin /usr/sbin /usr/local
Just ls each of those, and you'll have a full list.
Look at their respective man/info pages for info on them
