Everyone on this list is asking for help.  If you use a more descriptive
subject for your email, you'll get better answers.  See:
http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/articles/freebsd-questions/article.html

The handbook has everything you need.  If you get hung up on a specific
step, please feel free to ask on this list.  Unfortunately, it's
impractical to present an entire walkthrough on the mailing list.
Note that the FreeBSD handbook has many translations.  Check to see if
there is one in your native language:
http://www.freebsd.org/docproj/translations.html

There are also non-english mailing lists.  One in your native language
may make things easier for you, if it exists:

You've got it installed, so that step is complete.  Now you need to
configure it.  This section of the handbook should be helpful:
