Cannot connect via telnenet or ftp (Mandrake/Xinetd)

I cannot connect remotely or locally to my Mandrake Linux 9.1 with xinetd box via telnet or ftp.

# chkconfig --list telnet
telnet on

# grep disable /etc/xinetd.d/telnet
disable = no

I don't have any sort of firewall or filtering system.

I have checked /etc/hosts.deny and /etc/hosts.allow

I have been tinkering with xinetd.conf and the services are clearly enabled. After I make changes, I always # killall -USR1 xinetd

I have read in a previous post that somebody's problem in this situation was: "/etc/xinited/telnet & vsftps files did not have an extra blank line at the files." Do you know what he was speaking of?

I have now also tried re-installing inetutils (I saw on a thread on another site that it helped), with no success. Any ideas? Anybody?
