On LInuxLinux, we'll be using XChat, a popular graphical IRC chat client.
 
== IRC client setup instructions ==
 
<pre>
IRC server name: irc.freenode.netFreenode
channel name: #openhatch
</pre>
 
Given that information, and reviewing the XChat overview above, use XChat to connect to Freenode and join the OpenHatch channel. Pick any nickname you like. :) Once you have joined the channel, say hello!
 
== Registering a nickname on Freenode (optional) ==
 
You can pick a permanent name by "registering a nick". This doesn't mean you can't easily go by other names - instead, it reserves the nick you register so it can be used only by you. To register a nick, type the following command into your client's input line:
 
/msg NickServ REGISTER password youremail@example.com
 
Replace "password" with a secure password and "youremail@example.com" with your email. Further details are at [http://freenode.net/faq.shtml#nicksetup the Freenode FAQ pages].
 
== Return to laptop setup ==
