Just a suggestion, never tried it personally: you could invoke it in your .xinitrc?

xscreensaver -no-splash &
may be this works for linux but not for BSD.
But I remember last time I placed it in startup file as roddierod suggested.

Thanks a lot for helping.

Hello,

If you run under xdm (/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xdm):
in TakeConsole:
# to kill any xscreensaver that the users launched
xscreensaver-command -exit

in your .xsession:
xscreensaver -mode xxx &

if you run from startx:
in your .xinitrc:
xscreensaver-command -exit
xscreensaver -mode xxx &

(see man xscreensaver)

A good example: http://www.bodenstab.org/xdm.html
