Sounds like your telnetd isn't running or to be more precise it is not 
enabled in inetd. You probably want to get in from the serial port. I 
don't know if there is any other way to get in. Normally when you 
install from restore cd telnet is enabled but if you install yourself 
then telnet most likely will be disabled unless you enable it in config
