Bad! Bad organization!  No treat for you.

Seriously, running telnet is just a plain bad idea.  If you are just trying to test some things on your own, private, 2-machine, non-internet-connected LAN, then that's OK, but you should never use telnet in the real world - waaaayyy to insecure.

> i don't need any file & printer sharing do i need samba

Then that would be a no, I presume.

>how do i conf my xp client to use telnet service after pluging network wire to its eth card

Ummm,  have you tried Start->Run->telnet

>what service & protocol do i need on winxp client for accessing linux server telnet services
See above.

Cheers,
