I have try to make a desktop computer just to use BSD as a stand alone
desktop ...........I had a friend to help and even with his help we
haven't manage to load up KDE or Gnome.................it was partly
load up at the begining but it was very slow even with GNome and could
not find the host .................like I call the computer OGUN , it
had trouble finding the host,................so I load hte system again
it is in a old AMD 700 with over 600 SDRAM memory and a old 16 megs
NVIDIA video card.............but it should work
.......................My friend Colin went into TTY to get X11 to work
but no luck it work but it took to long to load up as well as getting
anything to run.................at the end manage to get KDE to run but
again to slow and many of the programs didn't work at all still would
not see the name of the computer OGUN ......................so I went to
FREE BSD page had a look and saw what to do after I load the system
again ..............load everything I could, all the X11 just  to make
sure...............but since I only know very little comand line not
like Colin knows lots and works with Debian Linux and makes its own OS
out of Debian.....he was a bit confuse.....so how can I use the keyboard
to turn on

ttyv8   "/usr/X11R6/bin/xdm -nodaemon"  xterm   off secure...........
everytime I try to type it in the keyboard it does something else so is any way one has to work with the keyboard to type on for the X11R6 
to work.
I just wanna use BSD so I can get use to it, and then use it on my other boxes ,I got with Debian linux Colin say that BSD is more secure 
than Debian linux so I like to try it . Can you please give some hints in how to make it work as a desktop at home and surf the net and burn cd's that all I want to do and word as well
but for now I only want the desktop running.
