In this case, I would recommend to use PC-BSD.

PC-BSD is full FreeBSD 7.1, with nice grapical installer, pre-configured for 
desktop use. Xorg, KDE, Firefox, Thunderbird, Open Office, flash, etc. -- all 
will work out of the box...

After installing PC-BSD, you can think of it as a standard FreeBSD -- Upgrade 
ports, build kernel, etc.
