Default [Q] how can I see and browse the system folder

Hi, I just rooted my SG i9000 with odin.
So now I like to do stuff in my system folder (removing and replacing swype)
However, I can't seem to get in there.
This fix, by chainfire, should also have installed busybox, but I can't find this did install 'superuser'....with which I can't seem to do a lot.

So the question is, how can I see and edit stuff in the system folder?
Do I need to install some kinnd of app for this?

I wouldn't recommend messing around in /sys if you don't know what you're doing.. If you want to just uninstall some stuff like bloatware that came with phone, try downloading titanium backup, you can uninstall system apps from there.

Also do verify before uninstalling that they're not critical
