I'm not sure what you are really trying to do or what type of Linux you are trying to telnet into (on-line? different partition?), but here are a few places to start.

EWAN is a good program for Windows to telnet into Linux systems over the internet. I've also been able to just type in the IP address of the Linux system you want to get into in your Run line (Start > Run).

If it is on the same system. You need to get Samba, but I've only begun using it, so I can't tell you much more about it other than it is for accessing Windows files.

Hope that helps...

most modern linux's i know of disable telnet by default since it is insecure (your username and passwords are passed around in plain text) however you can turn it back on, even tho it's a bad idea.

i would however recommend trying ssh instead. Putty is a windows client for ssh so that you can log into your linux box and ssh is secure and offers many improvements over telnet.

good luck to you
