127.0.0.1 is the loopback address for the local machine. You can't telnet to it. You can ping it though.

Why are you trying to telnet to it?

Telnet has nothing to do with setting up a DNS server on your own machine.

Try starting here

You can type serviceconf from the command-line or in GNOME go to
Programs -> System -> Service Configuration
and turn on Telnet

obviously you can only telnet into your machine if you have a telnet server running. what they mean is that you should have the loopback device setup. im certain that both mandrake and redhat do this automatically.
