RE: bufffer overflow in telnetd

Sorry for the really dumb question, but how to install this patch?
Upon unzipping this bz2 file, I got a bunch of files in <directory>/usr
and <directory>/etc. I checked the readme and saw that we need to run
the command iu-config from the usr/bin directory. What else do I need to
do to install the patch for telnet/ftp?
