-}i recently installed freebsd on my system. when i sign in to the root account, i get a prompt telling me about the documentation, then a # sign. how do i acess an interactive desktop like the one in windows/mac?

Freebsd does not install a window manager by default.  You have to pick one.
There are many for all ranges of needs.  If you do not wish to deal with
installing one but want the power/stability of freebsd, look for distros that
come complete with a window manager, such as pc-bsd.

Love with your heart, think with your head;  not the other way around.
