Have you checked that the telnet entry in /etc/inetd.conf is enabled (i.e.
exists and is not commented out)?

Here is what my telnet entry in /etc/inetd.conf looks like:

	telnet         stream  tcp     nowait  root    /usr/sbin/tcpd 

(the above is supposed to be on one line)

There should also be a telnet entry in /etc/services as follows:

	telnet          23/tcp
