iu-config asks if you want to install inetd as a service.
If you said NO here you need to install it manually.
$ inetd --install-as-service

Start the inetd service, then:

$ telnet localhost

login now with your username and password.

BTW, which Windows are you on?
I don't know how it works on Win98, search the docs and archives please
for information about this if needed.
