Is there a particular order in which things should be done?

I am a beginning FreeBSD/UNIX user and have recently installed
FreeBSD-5.3-RELEASE, Xorg, and KDE on a Pentium II Celeron 330
MHz custom made PC. Everything seems to be working ok for now,
but I feel completely overwhelmed because there is a tremendous
amount of info to learn. Yesterday, when I logged out of KDE and
back into command mode, I noticed a line in the output produced
during KDE bootup (is that the right lingo?) that my machine thinks it
is badly misconfigured. The exact message was "could not find local
host, your system is badly misconfigured". Here are my questions for
this forum. I preface my questions by saying that what I did was boot
from floppies and install via FTP. All at once, I installed FreeBSD
with Xorg and all of its fonts, Perl, Postfix, and every file in the KDE
directory, and something else that I've already forgotten. Since I am
a beginner, I expect I will go through the installation procedure a few
more times, but maybe I can be more efficient about it in the future.
So here is my question, in the future, what recommendations would
the community make about correct order of operations for installation
and configuration, and for confirmation that the install and
configuration are "correct"?
