I did.  That's how I got it installed.  :)

Well, the problem then would seem to be that there is not a "leafnode" in
the /etc/services file.  Is it as simple as adding that?

This isn't mentioned in the INSTALL file, but then again the INSTALL file
wasn't written for RedHat 7.3 (actually I think it's 7.2 or later) because
it doesn't explain how to handle xinetd.conf.  Is there something else in
the configuration with RedHat 7.3 that I have to do?

Again, locally this is what happens:
  [root]# telnet leafnode
  telnet: leafnode: bad port
  [root]# telnet nntp
  Connected to
  Escape character is '^]'.

but, from my windows machine on the same network
  C:\>telnet 119

119 :
