Well to begin, you can telnet by typing telnet followed by the IP address. Remember you can't login remotely as root either. You must telnet into you linux box using a regular user account besides root. You might not have telnet started either. But what kind of errors are you getting when attempting ot telnet.
Best way to edit files well is to use an editor. I personally like vi. But there are others like pico. Best thing to do is get familiar with the one you like best. And I always recomnmend vi due to it is about on any Linux/Unix system. Not all others are always there.
