Just edit the plist using whatever editor you like and delete the 
disabled option.  I don't know why it's there, probably from one of the 
commands you entered while trying to make this work.  It's not in the 
plist file as shipped.

If you're running Leopard and you want the session bus to start on 
demand instead at login, change the OnDemand option in the plist to 
true.  This doesn't work before 10.5, but it works fine there.  This 
will cause launchd to start the dbus session bus the first time someone 
tries to use it.  Having it running all the time doesn't really hurt 
anything.  When no one is using it, it doesn't use many resources.
