    You set the pieces up in a position you decide yourself rather than in the normal starting positions.

    I suppose one could offer odds, explore variations, or endgame study,etc. Is there a clear-board function?
    I thank the Dr. for answering what must have seemed like a silly question.

    The difference is that they don't affect your rating, all set piece games are unrated.

    I think you have to move the pieces into place unless you are using Firefox - in which case there may be a greasemonkey script that assists you - check the developers forum if you are intersted.
