Hi,
I solved this problem since I met the same issue as you. Below is my 
code, you can refer to it. Any question, just mail to me: 
sszhang_2003 / hotmail.com

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
require 'net/telnet'

telnet = Net::Telnet.new('Host' => 'Your IP',
                         'Prompt' => /[ftpusr@suse46:~>]*\z/n)
#The prompt should be the real prompt while you entered your system

telnet.waitfor(/[Ll]ogin[: ]*\z/n) {|c| print c}
telnet.cmd("Your User") {|c| print c}
telnet.waitfor(/Password[: ]*\z/n) {|c| print c}
telnet.cmd("Your password") {|c| print c}
telnet.cmd("dumb") {|c| print c}
#This is must, because in SuSE, by default, the terminal type is "dumb"
#Then, send your command here
telnet.cmd('df -k'){|c| print c}
STDOUT.flush
#Here, wait for the prompt
telnet.waitfor(/[$%#>] \z/n) {|c| print c}
#Then, leave the system
telnet.cmd('exit') {|c| print c}
telnet.close
