I have 7.0-RELEASE-i386-disc1.iso and burned it onto a CD-ROM,
but that didn't seem to work either.  I will try it again...

It is curious why the contents of the ISOs is not listed
somewhere.  The only way I could find to inspect them was:

# mdconfig -a -t vnode -f <whatever>.iso -u 0
# mount -t cd9660 /dev/md0 /mnt

which is from section 18.6.2 of the Handbook.
