Telnet, ftp and Internet


hi,
I am very new as linux adminstrator. Using Red Hat(2.4.18-14). It was working fine. But some unavoidable reason I need to reinstall it again. After making all necessary changes(done before)I could not able to connect this maching through telnet/ ftp as well as from this maching Internet also not connected.
I have changed network, ifcfg-eth0, xinetd.d/telnet, wu-ftpd etc...and configured related IP, gatways proxy etc.
Please help me in this matter, I seek it very urgently.

kernel 2.4.18-14 says you are using redhat 8.0. this is 5 years old and generally regarded as the worst redhat release ever. as a new administrator, you will REALLY strguggle if you stick with that version of redhat. Instead use RHEL5, or CentOS5, and the installer will sort all your issues out for you.

additionally, no self respecting Linux admin would use telnet... use ssh instead.
