The game will be unrated.. ok?
Make a new game, and click Advanced Options
Click the Play from set piece check Box.
A board with many options now pops up. Pick what you want and set the pieces where you want them.
Should be enough help for you to figure it out.

So one could even start a game with a handicap, such as a missing knight or what have you? But it would not be rated, from what you say.
