Dont feel bad. 5 years ago I asked the same question. If you have the internet set up on the machine, Here is what I would suggest. Login as root: #xf86config If that does not work then #cd /usr/ports/x11/XFree86-4 #make install clean When that finishes, or the first worked, answer the questions, the mouse will be /dev/sysmouse, and then do a #startx If that worked, then login as your user, adn run the %startx And now you have X setup and running, next you can decide on what windowmanager to use: http://www.plig.org/xwinman/ And then you can install the one you like. I would suggest KDE or GNOME for a new user. -- Bob Bomar [EMAIL PROTECTED] ----------------------------- FreeBSD: The Power to Serve http://www.freebsd.org
