Default Fluxbox don't start

Hello,
I'm new to FreeBSD and it is my first OS different from M$ and i have one 'problem. I have installed xorg and fluxbox from packages. I'm using hal and dbus to configure xorg. So when i type in prompt startx everythink works fine. But when i type startfluxbox i get this error.
Code:
xmodmap: unable to open display
error: couldn't connect to Xserver
And I dony't know what to do. Any help?
Greetings
Artur

The startfluxbox script does not start X, you're supposed to add it into your .xinitrc script.

echo "exec fluxbox" > /home/artur/.xinitrc? This is right command?

If your username is "artur" and you don't have anything in your .xinitrc file you'd like to keep, yes.
You then start Xorg using xinit (or startx).
