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
 zope> restart

You should then be able to log in as 'admin' with password '123'.
