Go to:   and study the handbook.  It has 
complete sections on getting ISO files and doing the installation.

By the way, you will not want Linux files for a FreeBSD install.
FreeBSD is not Linux.  It is BSD UNIX.   Although it does have a
Lunix compatibility mode and libraries, it is a completely different
thing with somewhat different philosophy and quite a different structure
from Lunix.
