Which manual is that? There's a paper version of the handbook, but that
doesn't come with a CD. I know that "FreeBSD Unleashed" comes with a
copy of 4.4, but that is not "the manual".

If you haven't installed X-windows, install it. If you don't know how
to install it, su to root (type "su" at the $ prompt, and enter the root
password), and type "/stand/sysinstall". Follow the instructions. By
default, X-windows is installed with the twm window manager. At the "$"
prompt, type "startx". That's the quickest route to a working desktop.
