"superuser" is just another name for the user "root". In case you have a very badly designed privilege scheme there might be more than one user name equivalent to root: search the file /etc/passwd for all users with the UID 0 in this case.

Every user with UID 0 is "root" per definition.

I hope this helps.

In addition, to complicate matters slightly, there may be (sudo) definitions in the sudoers file that allow regular users to gain root privileges...
