On Send Request:-  
Show get dialogue:- The same as manually accepting a send request. (A wise choice) 
Auto-get file and minimize:- Not a very wise thing to do. 
Ignore all:- mIRC will ignore all send requests by other users. 
Ask, Resume or Overwrite:-  If you select resume then mIRC will attempt to negotiate a transfer resume to get the remaining part of the file. It will append this to the portion of the file you already have.

Max. Fileservers:- Specify here how many users can be served simultaneously. 
Max. DCC gets per user:- This limits the number of simultaneous DCC Gets a user can request. 
Root directory:- This specifies the root directory that a user will see when they first enter a fileserver initiated via the DCC Server. The user will be able to access all files and directories within this root directory.  
Welcome text file:-  This specifies the welcome text file that will be sent to a user when they first connect to a fileserver.  
Display fileserver warning:-  You will be warned that someone is doing an fserve on your server  

NOTE:- A user must type /DCC fserve your IP  to start an fserve. Doing /DCC fserve your nick  is slow and sometimes does not work. To find your IP an user can do /dns your nick.
