I have installed freeBSD6.1 - Release on my Dell Latitude which has a
Nvidia GeForce2go video card.

I am trying to get xwindows to work. I downloaded the NVIDIA driver from:

http://www.nvidia.com/object/freebsd_1.0-8762.html

I installed the package. Documentation also said to install compat5x
which I did. I ran the nvidia-xconfig.

When I do a Startx it just hangs. Any suggestions? I have spent the
better part of a day searching and trying to get this to work.

I'd suggest you to install the driver via ports:

# cd /usr/ports/x11/nvidia-driver/
# make install

BTW, you may obtain better aswers at comp.unix.bsd.freebsd.misc.
