Trouble setting up Telnet access

Howdy, I'm running Potato on a SS2.

How do I set up telnet access from a workstation? ie I want to be able to
telnet into the SS2 from other computers on the network.

I've put telnet(tcp) in my /etc/services file (or maybe it was
/etc/inetd.conf sorry don't have it infront of me at the moment)
I've put 'in.telnetd: 192.168.1.' in my /etc/hosts.allow file.
After this the telnet client (on another machine) just goes blank and then
says that the host was lost whereas before these changes it said connection

I was using a RedHat Linux book which said in.telnetd instead of telnetd but
I've done a search and cant find any form of *telnetd on the entire system.

If I don't have telnetd on my system, does that mean that I can't be
telnet'ed into ?
Where can I get telnetd?
What was the possible explanation for the 'in.' preceeding the telnetd? Does
it stand for 'internal' which would explain why I can't find a command with
a similar name?

Thanks in advance,
Damian Del Campo
