Talking about security lately - you really don't want to run ANY of
those services :)

Used ssh for telnet, rsh, rlogin and such, scp for ftp (okay - you need
ftp for anonymous users) and rcp ... Don't even think of the
r-services anyway...

If you need one of those install them _seperately_ from the
netkit-base-location... (or get better ftpds like proftpd, wu-ftpd (both
vulnerable in older versions...))
