inetd.conf file = gone on my home linux box

Hi there

I'm trying to set up swat on my linux box at home and when i read the man pages on it it says that i have to edit a file called inetd.conf but i did a search like
find / -name inetd.conf
but it only comes up with this.
/etc/linuxconf/archive/Home-Office/etc/inetd.conf
find: /mnt/cdrom: Input/output error
find: /mnt/floppy: Input/output error
find: /proc/975/fd: No such file or directory

so i moved to the only one it found but it say that the file is empty
how do i go about getting this file agian.
or would i be able to recreat it by just vi ing a new file in /etc
and calling it inetd.conf

Thanks in advance
Nemex
