We have installed Open ERP and now dont seem to have any administrational rights. When I try to change some data it tells me that I dont habe the rights. Is there a way to set up an administrator account to get those rights and how?

login as admin and password admin? Please edit your Headline.

At the install you have edit the file vim /etc/openerp-server.conf And you certainly have set the configuration for your server like:

; This is the password that allows database operations:
admin_passwd = PASSWORD
db_host = False
db_port = False
db_user = openerp
db_password = False
addons_path = /opt/openerp/v7/addons,/opt/openerp/v7/web/addons
;Log settings
logfile = /var/log/openerp/openerp-server.log
log_level = error

Your admin password is here and the admin panel is the "setting" panel.
