I am running Debian 2.2., a new installation (my first). I would like to
add telnet to the services of inetd.conf. The file cautions me to use only
update-inetd to do this.

My general question is 'How do I use update-inetd to add telnet to my
inetd.conf services?' I have read the update-inetd man page and the
associated man pages and it is still not clear.
