Been at this for three nights now.
also make sure you don't select X while installing freeBSD
Why? and I think I did.

I have been posting elsewhere over the last couple of days...

As suggested there by anomie, who I thank for his patience, I update ports and used portmaster to update to the latest xorg...

Follow the steps here under "Portsnap Method":

Once you've completed those steps, also do the following:

# cd /usr/ports/ports-mgmt/portmaster && make install clean

# rehash

# portmaster /usr/ports/x11/xorg
and this is the result...
Port Directory: /usr/ports/x11-drivers/xf86-video-i810
      This port is marked BROKEN.
      Does not compile.
      If you are sure you can build it remove BROKEN line in the 
      Makefile and try again.
Update for xf86-video-i810- failed.
Aborting update.
Update for xorg-drivers-7.3 failed.
Aborted update.
Where do i go next...
I am studying because my boss says I should be certified
