xinetd is available for F10...it depends, greatly, on what options you
chose when you installed. For example, if you didn't select to install
telnet or some other tools, it may not have opted to install xinetd.

Many services do not run, usually, from xinetd, such as ssh or httpd,
though they could be made to do so

Was there something specific that you wanted to run, that would normally
require xinetd?
