FIRST OF ALL: DO NOT SHOUT :-)
you don't tell us anything about your system, distro, etc. , so i have to guess a bit
telnet usually is started from inetd (man inetd) or xinetd (man xinetd)
all operations must be doen as "root" user
example for inetd users:
look at /etc/inetd.conf and find a line with telnet as first column
telnet stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/tcpd in.telnetd
if it's commented out with a '#' in front, remove the '#'
# telnet stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/tcpd in.telnetd
--- remove this
then check if inetd is started when the system boots (depends on your distributiuon)
and either start it or reload the configuration
e.g. (SuSE, inetd)
to activate inetd if it's not active yet - type: "insserv inetd"
or to reload the configuration file: "rcinetd restart"
