Enlightentment is supported. You can find it and related items in 
/usr/ports/X11-wm, and instructions for installing ports are in the 
Handbook (http://www.freebsd.org/doc/ru/books/handbook/)

However, a beginner should probably not use FreeBSD 5.2.1 as it is 
essentially an unstable developer preview and has known problems. 
You really should install 5.4 or 6.0 (best) before trying to learn 
how things work.

Otherwise when things go wrong you might not be able to easily 
determine if it was your mistake or the OS. Also, every time you ask 
for help with a problem, part of the answer is likely to be that you 
should upgrade to a current version to fix it.
