My friend wants to use IRC (briefly, of course) on Windows 98. We tried using mIRC, but turns out that it isn't free, and requires registration. Can anyone here suggest a decent IRC client that will run on Windows 98? Thanks for any suggestions!

Chatzilla from within SeaMonkey 1.1? Haven't used it in a while, but it was always my go-to client on Win9x. It's also possible to add the plugin to Firefox 1.x/2.x.

Xchat used to support Win98 a long time ago, probably no public builds around that does anymore though.
MirandaIM had IRC support also

by the way, DOSBox is not for running Windows 9x
