I'm sorry to tell you that ports don't run..they just don't do that!
But if you want to see all open ports on your machine, you can take any portscanner (eg. nmap) and scan localhost.

Is telnet running?
Check running processes with top or ps
Port 80 is usually a webserver

Use Mandrake Control Center. If telnet is installed go to services and select telnet to start at boot. There is also a button to start the service.

To start the service without a GUI then open up a console window. (This will start the service but will not configure to start at boot.)

service telnet start
