Well, the .iso files you get from the FreeBSD distribution are ISO
image files that need to be burned directly to a disk.  There is no
other processing or formatting that may be done.   

I do not know what you mean by 'unzipped to a cd rom'.  I have never
done anything that sounded like that.

You should just download the .iso file and burn in to a fresh cd 
and fixate it.  Then boot it.
