Recover / Reset TELNET password?

When I try to TELNET to my Catalyst 2900XL switch (WS-2924C-XL) I get "Password Required, But None Set"

When I re-run the setup, it does not prompt me for a TELNET password, only for a "Secret" password (for administrator).

Any way to reset or recover just the TELNET password? I had to reload the original software onto the switch, and the TELNET password worked before that. Do I need to reload a newer software on the switch before that'll work again?

Thanks!
