Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I don't want to come across as rude, but are you ABSOLUTELY POSITIVE you can't do without a telnet daemon? You can use ssh for all the same stuff and more, plus you won't be teaching yourself bad security practices
What exactly is it that requires a telnet daemon? Usually you'll find there's a better way to do it.
I see... well, in my limited experience, a MUD server does not require a standard in.telnetd type of setup. You would install the MUD server (is there one you have in mind?) and if you want to do things the clean standard way, you can make entries for it in /etc/services and /etc/inetd.conf so it gets started at bootup, I guess.
You do need telnet CLIENTS. Or mud clients, which are little different. I thought you were asking how to set up a telnet daemon, which raises big red flags... I think we were talking past each other. On the "telnet" side, you already have everything you, personally, need to connect to the mud. You just need to download and install your mud server, which of course I know nothing about.
