This can be quite involved to get running but basicvally mysqladmin needs to be resolved first before you can use it.
A couple of ways of doing this could be:
1) involves setting up a .bash_profile or .profile file in your ~home directory containing an alias directive to the mysqladmin file, i.e. alias mysqladmin='/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqladmin'.
2) involves setting up a symbolic link to the mysqladmin within the /bin/ directory so it is automatically loaded up when the system starts:
