bash: ssh command not found

Hi i have bought this laptop Aspire one , and its install Linpus linux. this system does not come wth root password!!!

by default it boot to user called "user"

now i have checked this one has sudoer installed.

so i typed,  >> su -s then >> after typing the password as user its showing root@lcalhost  [ so i guess it got root user]

now when i am typing ssh  root@myip
its saying bash: ssh command not found

what do i have to do to use ssh command here ...

whereis ssh is saying , only /etc/ssh

its saying, -bash: /usr/bin/ssh: no such a file
