Did something wordwrap your inetd.conf when editting it. The line for
telnet in SuSE 7.3 is:
telnet stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/tcpd in.telnetd
You might also check your /etc/hosts.allow and hosts.deny (man 5
hosts_access). Of course you should block all incoming internet access to
telnet and login with hosts.allow, hosts.deny and/or firewall. Any
connections from the internet should be ssh instead.
