getting telnet and ftp working

Thanks, to those that answered my previous question..  I have another
question... the reason I wanted to restart inetd is because I am trying
to get telnetd and ftpd working.  I
added the following entries to inetd.conf:

ftp        stream    tcp    nowait    root    /usr/sbin/tcpd
telnet    stream    tcp    nowait    root    /usr/sbin/tcpd

restarted inetd:
kill -HUP <inetd pid>

then tried to do:
telnet localhost

which resulted in: "Connection close by foreign host."
ftp localhost resulted in: "421 Service not available, remote server has

closed connection"

Any ideas why this is not working?

Thanks again for your help,
