Well, there are already a sysinstall and GUI-Sysinstall is on it's way. Also, 
there are such things like PC-BSD and DesktopBSD. While PC-BSD is kind of 
fork (with it's pbi subsystem), DesktopBSD is just preconfigured FreeBSD with 
nice graphical user-friendly installer and some additional soft like 
graphical pakage manager, wi-fi network configurator, user-mounting GUI tool 
and so on. Maybe you should try DesktopBSD?
