it could be a couple of things...

check if xinetd is running... /etc/rc.d/init.d/xinetd status put 
ALL:in.ftpd and ALL:in.telnetd in /etc/hosts.allow, make sure you have 
the telnet server rpm installed rpm -qa|grep telnet, make sure you have 
wu-ftp and anon ftp rpms installed.  make sure you have disable = no in 
/etc/xinetd.d/telnet and wu-ftp
