    Personally I don't use freebsd, but normally if KDE is already installed, and you boot up into the terminal, you start the GUI by entering startx.

    1) Install kde using sysinstall (in x11/kde4-4.?.?) also x11/xorg is needed
    2) configure Xorg - X -configure, and move new config file as /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    3) Check if it runs - kdm --nodaemon
    4) Set it to launch permannetly in /etc/ttytab (command line options like for xdm there)
    kill -1 1 - refresh ttytab wo reboot.
