[lug] Beginner Question

When I was a "beginner" I installed RH7 (workstation install) and discovered 
that ftp and telnet do not work.  I tried installing the packages 
individually, but it still would not work.  So I formatted and reinstalled 
this time doing it custom style, making sure to select ftp and telnet.  
Since Red Hat has a dependency checker it (I guess) found everything I 
needed and worked.  So either A. Use "Server Installation" or B. Use "Custom 
Installation" making sure to select ftp and telnet.  BTW, am I correct in 
assuming FTP and TELNET are disabled by default on workstations for security
