I changed the xinet.d file to portmap even though it said rpc.portmap because there
wasn't one located anywhere within this box.  I then ran the two 'test' cases and
installed the portmap and xinetd.  but when I tried to telnet in from outside my
machine, this is the response I received:

telnet greyghost.gt.ed.net
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused

thanks for the help, we'll get it soon enough   :)
