Easy way to do it is if you use a MySQL database to store it. Do
$username = (name of user);
$admin = mysql_query( "SELECT * FROM usertable WHERE user='$username'" );
if( $admin->admin )
    print "<a href='/adminarea'>ADMIN</a>"

$username --> variable to hold the name of the user.
$admin --> query to obtain the database row for that user
if() --> checks to see if the "admin status" column of the database is set
to true, if so it prints admin link.
