That's easy,install only windowmaker from the post-configuration screen
(apps section) . Launch a terminal,like dos prompt,su to root,and enter
"touch .xinitrc" , while you are there you might type "touch .xsession"
as well. after that edit the file: /etc/tty's ,you only have to change
off in on on line 8 (tty8...)

Effect is you get a ugly xdm login screen after reboot and you have at
least something to read the online Handbook with at www.freebsd.org,for
a fair start and further configuration examples.

Have fun,don't forget nothing is what it seems :-)
