I spent a lot of time trying to get it up with limited success.
In those days, a failure to configure X Window resulted in a failed install, that is why the X configuration has been eliminated from the installation process since quite some time.

You now have to install X from packages or ports after the install.
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
