 Most certainly, yes. I do the above all the time.

 Note: vanila shell mode under emacs ie when you do M-x shell does not handle
 terminal emulation correctly. This means that things like telnet don't work
 well under shell-mode.
 Emacs has a "term.el" that does terminal emulation, but this is also buggy.
 There is a package called eterm which is a full terminal emulator for emacs,
 and this is what I use when I run telnet sessions from inside emacs. eterm is
 powerful and robust and will let you open telnet sessions to other hosts and
 work correctly. Emacspeak has been extended to work with eterm; see module
 emacspeak-eterm.el

 You can pick up eterm from ftp://ftp.cygnus.com/pub/eterm
