In response to n...@pettefar.com:

In www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/install-post.html
It says: "If the X server has been configured and a Default Desktop
chosen, it can be started by typing startx at the command line." but
nowhere in the manual or the installation program is there any
information or options on X server configuration or choosing a Default
Desktop!  Help!

You weren't able to find this page?:
Or this one?:

Nowhere, indeed.

I missing the .xinitrc in the GNOME setup as well... Now I just feel
like an idiot as usual.

FreeBSD is Unix, right? That means you can do things any way you want. Presently I login as root on a tty and type "kdm" to start up the GUI. I've done it about five other ways as well.

Is there a "right" way to do things in Unix?????
