Redhat telnet

How can I let my Redhat 5.0 machine accept telnets from remote users? When users try to telnet to the machine, it prompts for the login, but then when the correct passwords are entered, it say login incorrect eventhough I know for certain that the correct user and password was entered.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Er, no.  That would be what you do to allow _root_ access from the outside.
