why would you want telnet in an *nix machine?
It is a windows ( To my known knowledge) product and unsecure.
Use ssh to talk to other *unix machines.

Linux is configured to run the Telnet , but by default, this service is not enabled. To enable the telnet login to the server as the root user account and run the following commands:
# chkconfig telnet on
# service xinetd reload
Reloading configuration: [ OK ]

Change in the file

cd /etc/xinetd.d
vi telnet
there will be disable=yes change it to disable=no
save the file and then restart
/etc/init.d/xinetd restart
listen telnet will not connect with root user use ordninary user.
