The default in SuSE 7.2 /etc/rc.config is:

# start the inet daemon in multi-user? ("yes" or "no")
# this is needed, if you have to telnet/rlogin to your own machine.
# It is also needed for the man page formatter in SuSE Help system.

Change it to yes and run /sbin/SuSEconfig or do both from YaST2.
