Open a command prompt and type "telnet" (no " though) - see what that does. What do you want it for? - not a great deal of use these days.

Wikipedia should be able to tell you what telnet is (basically it's a type of internet communication protocol). As for what version you'll need, probably the latest version. What you need isn't so much a 'version' of telnet as it is a telnet client. (Similarly, you would want an email client moreso than the latest version of email). For Windows, a popular telnet client is PuTTY, while the built-in OSX Terminal application will allow you to make telnet connections on the MacOS X computers.
