as paul said, put the "instances = 250" line into the /etc/xinetd.d/telnet
as far as what it means, an excerpt from the xinetd.conf man page:
instances determines the number of servers that can
be simultaneously active for a service
(the default is no limit). The value of
this attribute can be either a number or
UNLIMITED which means that there is no
many files in /etc have man pages. not as many as there should be, but
it's getting better.
