I don't normally install the packaged versions. Here is what I just did:
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install zope2.8
$ sudo apt-get install plone2.1
This fails: "Couldn't find package plone2.1"
$ sudo apt-get install plone-site
which wants a lot of zope2.7 packages installed. I don't know how you
were able to install plone2.1 via synaptic.
Here is something else to try:
$ sudo /var/lib/zope2.8/plone-site/bin/zopectl
zope> adduser admin 123
You should then be able to log in as 'admin' with password '123'.
