Farhan, good question.

Go into the X-Chat server list. Create a new server entry Put the following info

name: IRC.freenode.net
server: irc.freenode.net
channels: #linuxpakistan, #debian, #redhat, #<YOUR_FAVORITE_DISTRO>
nickname: your nickname

Select the "AUTOCONNECT" command. and get out of that window.If you're like me and you only frequent a fixed list of channels by default, in the "Server List" window, check "No ServerList On startup". That way, next time you fire up xchat, it'll connect to freenode.net and join your favorite channels. Of course, you can set it to join different servers automatically, so you can do a similar config for irc.dal.net to join #pakistan.
