Are you trying to set up a telnet server - that is, to access your computer remotely? Or a telnet client, to get to other computers?

If it's a server, you should probably go with OpenSSh rather than telnet; it's more secure, and - from a newbie POV, more importantly - easier to find good HOWTOs for.
