For security reasons X can only be started as root (default). There are
several ways around this, setting the suid bit, something I don't know
anymore :) and installing the wrapper-script.
for the wrapper: you can find it in the ports /usr/ports/x11/wrapper/
just instal this thingy and you'll be able to run X as a normal user.
PS: this question has been answered before, if u want more info there
probably are some more posts concerning this subject in this group.
Have fun with BSD :)
