Read the Handbook for information on how to set things up.
Additionally, I'd suggest checking out Greg Leahy's FreeBSD book, now
available in downloadable PDF format from  Even better, buy it.

If you don't have a registered domain name, note that the ""
domain is reserved for such uses; but any "fantasy" name should work,
providing the name you choose doesn't conflict with a real (registered)

You'll also most likely want to add a DHCP server.

cd /usr/ports && make search name=dhcp

The rest is left as an exercise for the reader.
