I found it, and you're not limited to 3.5.1.

You can also get other architectures besides i386, and if you don't want ISO-images. you can also get it by bits and pieces, which could be useful if you install through the ftp server.

Still, perhaps you don't really need such an old version.

I once downloaded the ISO for 2.2.9 for an old computer , Cx486DX-2S at 66 MHz, 20 MB RAM, hard drive controller apparently went bad, all I have to install onto is a SCSI Iomega Zip 250 on Trantor T130B SCSI card which also runs the internal CD-ROM drive, apparently not supported in FreeBSD >= 3.0.  I failed to access the CD on the first few tries.
