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.

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

You should download the file, libc-5.3.12-28.i386.rpm
from the redhat site:
