Please explain to me why it needs to be graphical. In particular,
why flickering 60Hz standard VGA graphics mode is better than 70Hz
non-flickering standard VGA text mode. I'm apparently awfully
dense, but I simply can't grasp what advantages a graphical
installation offers over a curses-based one (nor what a curses-based
one offers over a simple prompt system).

I'm under the impression that a novice installation does just this.
Of course, you do realize that FreeBSD is a unix system which, once
it is installed, needs a skilled administrator? When I started
out with unix, I was told you needed ten years of experience to be
qualified for system administration. No matter whether you believe
in that estimate, systems have not become any simpler since.
