Mozilla in the KDE Window manager on FreeBSD 4.8

Does anyone know how to start up Mozilla in the KDE Window manager on
FreeBSD 4.8?

I installed Mozilla by making use of the ports as installed during the
FreeBSD 4.8 installation routine:
	/usr/ports/www/mozilla/make install

The installation seems to have been completed succesfully (see
'installation for mozilla-1.2.1_1.log.txt), but when I try to start
Mozilla by clicking or double clicking NOTHING happens, not even an
error logging.
And when I try to start Mozilla from an xterm (KDE Konsole) with one of
the following shell scripts

I get the message 'no running window found' and the shell prompt

Any suggestions?

Sorry to say so, I am a bit disappointed with my fresh installation of
FreeBSD Release 4.8 with X-Windows (KDE 3.1), because 'startx' simply
won't work.

Here's what is says during startup:

	Fatal server error:
	xf86EnableIO: Failed to open /dev/io for extended I/O
	X connection to :0.0 broken (explicit kill or server shutdown).
	xauth:  creating a new authority file /root/.Xauthority
	xauth: (argv):1: bad disply name ":0" in "remove" command
	xauth: (argv):1: bad disply name ":0" in "remove" command

Actually, I haven't done anything in particular but running the
installation CD-Rom. Any suggestions how to get XWindows start?
