2) Install mIRC by double-clicking on the downloaded file.
3)Now click on Start->Programs->mIRC->mIRC
In the Full Name box, enter anything except your real name.
In the e-mail address box, enter anything but your real e-mail address.
In the Nickname box, enter your nickname
The Alternate nickname box is there because someone on IRC may already be using the nickname you want to use, so in that case, it will resort to the alternative nickname. When you're done, Ignore the rest and press OK.
5) Now enter /server irc.emuparadise.org It will then connect you to the server. And it will ask you which channel you want to join.
Type emuparadise and click on the Join button.
6) Now, the main chat window will pop-up.
