Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

i'm really new, and i'm assuming you are? sorry if you're not... i really don't know, all i know is that i had a similar type of problem wehre i had no graphical environment, but it turns out you have to install kde and gnome from the ports list by logging in and running sysinstall then chosing packages,then under gnome selecting the appropriate packages
Just go back into sysinstall and under post install find the xmanagers and install gnome or kde or whichever you prefer and then make yourself a .xintrc file as described above and it should work for you, I had the same problem and found out that the .xinitrc file is not put on by default even if you do install gnome or kde you still need to make that file to call it after you install your window manager
