telnet:could not resolve localhost/25: Name or service not known

During my first install I now recall taking this as good since telnet is not that secure.... but looking closer at the screen picture in the guide I see that that error didn't belong there...

My guess is that telnet is not running, and then I remember that earlier (as instructed by the guide) I had typed "update-inetd --remove telnet"

Any connection here ?
Yes, Telnet is not installed on your Server.
But "telnet localhost 25" is a console connection to port 25, which is your postfix mailserver.

EDIT, PLEASE READ : apt-get reported that the package "mysqladmin" didn't exist, so I installed package "mysql-admin" instead. Have a blown it ?
If the packege mysql-admin installed correctly, there is no problem. Maybe the package has been renamed since the howto was written.
