You don't, it is to insecure.
Use ssh instead

I will not go into why you wanna do this,but if you don't know ssh is more secure as repo said and you should use it,but if you must do it,edit
Code:
/etc/xinetd.d/telnet
In this file, find the line for disable and change it from the value "yes" to "no".

After changing the above value,as root,type the following command:
Code:
/etc/init.d/xinetd reload
Telnet is usually started with
Code:
/usr/bin/telnet
<Enter>
Code:
chkconfig telnet on
<Enter>

To enable root login edit the file /etc/securetty and add the following to the end of the file:
Code:
pts/0
pts/1
pts/2
pts/3
pts/4
pts/5
Now you can have 5 sessions as root to the server.
