When you press TAB in certain shells such as tcsh or bash, it gives you the
available executables in your "PATH". Each user has his/her own PATH setting
so what the root user sees by pressing TAB is different from what others see.

To set your PATH to include a certain directory, it is a matter of changing or
adding a line to your shell initialization file, such as .tcshrc, etc. which
should reside in the home directory of the user. Find out what shell you are
running and then read the man pages for that.
