I'm a moron !!!
Thanks for all your help everyone (some PM'ed me too).
Idiots guide to IRC (written by a IRC idiot!!):
Download MIRC and connect to server NewNet (a random server or one you choose).
Close the channels list (you know where you wanna go)
Type /join #emuchina
admin spammer addition ;)
Then you can chat to people her OR download some ADF's.
Type !list for a list of DCC file servers running.
It should say something like "Trigger: !GetFiles". So to access that server type !GetFiles. A new window should open once you click confirmation box.
Then you are browsing the file server so using dos-type dir/cd commands find the files you want.
Then type get filename.zip to queue your file. You can only queue a certain amount of files - to see your place in the queue type "queues".
Once you have filled your queue and/or chosen what you want then you should EXIT the DCC (you don't have to stay in like I was trying!). So type exit.
Eventually you should hit #1 in the queue and a message should be sent to you telling you that someone is trying to send you a file. This can be set to auto-answer.
Hope this helps, I have written this from my brief 1 hour exposure to MIRC/IRC/DCC so there are probably easier/quicker ways of doing things.
