Hi all folks,

This is my first time installing UNIX - FreeBSD 5.2

- Graphic card - Creative Graphic Blaster RiVA-TNT
- One IDE ATA-hard disc - connected to ATA controller
(Entire disc for FreeBSD)
- 2 ethernet cards, Realtek
- USB mouse - 3 buttons, wheel
- CDRom - secondary slave
- CDWriter - secondary master
- 101 keyboard

Installing media - CD1

Installation went through without complaint with auto-partitioning. Coming to X configuration, no USB mouse driver was available for selection compelled to select PS/2 mouse instead. It did ask for selecting video card driver and rebooted automatically. X window started but I have no idea which mode it was. Mouse did not work. The screen pop-up with a mouse pad/key pad and a small XFConfig diagram. I have no problem to navigate the mouse with key pad, highlight the item but could not select it. 'Enter' key did not function. Finally I pressed a hard-reboot to restart the PC. PC restarted going straight to text mode with login popup. I entered 'root' and then 'startx'. This time X window could not start.

Kindly advise how to fix it.
