It's the difference between a client and a server.  "telnet" is a client
that simply sends text to any internet socket (well, perhaps not quite that
simple).  telnetd is a server that you have no need for (in _any_
circumstance, imo).  You wanted to use telnet to test access to an http
server, not a telnetd server.

Come on, now.  You have to try to help yourself here; we can't do
everything - and given that there are probably about 1 of us actually
running Oracle XE, I'm the only help you've got :-)

Look at the script - your TNS listener is up, so there's only one line there
that could have an effect (I expect you get no output from the TNS listener
step because it was already up).  Try executing the SQLPLUS line - without
the /NOLOG

In fact, I _do_ expect a lot more than that.  If I run the script from my
own terminal, I get:

$ /usr/lib/oracle/xe/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/server/config/scripts/startdb.sh
  ERROR: 
  ORA-09925: Unable to create audit trail file
  Linux Error: 13: Permission denied
  Additional information: 9925
  ORA-09925: Unable to create audit trail file
  Linux Error: 13: Permission denied
  Additional information: 9925

I don't remember exactly what that was, but I know I googled the fix for it
last time it happened (as you can see, I haven't had my Oracle DB up for a
week or more).  I'm reasonably certain in this case it has to do with the
fact that I deleted and recreated the 'dba' group this week - for reasons
not worth going into that are not related to oracle.
