FreeBSD 8.3 with LSI MegaRAID 9265-8i

Well, this is a real problem. I have nothing where I am to build and burn an 
ISO, and I am trying to work with someone several states away through an 
IKVM switch. The server-to-be is on a port on the switch and I need them to 
download the ISO via FTP and burn it to a disc and drop it in the tray. 
Right now I'll happily pay $50 to to anyone who can provide me with an ISO 
of 8.3 stable in a location that I can provide to the person in missouri so 
he can download it and create the DVD. I'm serious. Paypal is at the ready.
