Vista : Where is telnet?

For some bizarre reason, telnet is not installed by default on Vista. How to get it back >

1) Start > Control Panel > Programs and Features

2) Look on left hand task pane and click 'Turn Windows Features on or off'

3) Locate and enable 'Telnet Client' in the list that appears.

4) Click OK and wait (for what seems like an eon)

Proceed to command prompt and use telnet like in the good old days :)
