"batch files" in red hat, similar to .bat files in dos

i regularly connect to a server via telnet, instead of always having to type "telnet" is there a way to create a "batch file" (like old dos.bat) files to do this? i was made aware of a file in a local directory where you can list your own commands.. can anyone point me in the right direction?

I hope this will give you a good grasp of how to utilize the powers of the command line...
