That's intended. ;-)
OpenBSD Security wrote: "Secure by Default"

To ensure that novice users of OpenBSD do not need to become security experts overnight (a viewpoint which other vendors seem to have), we ship the operating system in a Secure by Default mode. All non-essential services are disabled. As the user/administrator becomes more familiar with the system, he will discover that he has to enable daemons and other parts of the system. During the process of learning how to enable a new service, the novice is more likely to learn of security considerations.

This is in stark contrast to the increasing number of systems that ship with NFS, mountd, web servers, and various other services enabled by default, creating instantaneous security problems for their users within minutes after their first install.
If you want to try again, this HowTo might help you, too:
OpenBSD - For Your Eyes Only wrote: OpenBSD is secure, stable and fast. Though not the most user-friendly OS on the market, it's one of the most interesting. Many a geek has spent entertaining days, weeks and months playing with this marvelous tool, as their long-neglected spouses will attest. Note that not all computer widows/widowers consider this to be a hardship.
Just don't give up! ;-)
