Well that should be enough; I don't know about KDE but as for GNOME
you can simply turn on the knob


in /etc/rc.conf and then execute

/usr/X11R6/etc/rc.d/ start

Note: only do this after you configured X to work right; GDM starts X
as part of a graphical login screen.

There is a way to start gnome using the 'startx' method but I don't
know it.
