This is the verbatim text from the FreeBSD handbook I have a copy of:

FreeBSD installation files are available at 
Each installation file's name includes the release version of FreeBSD,  
the architecture,
and the type of file. For example, to install FreeBSD 10.0 on an amd64  
system from a DVD,
download FreeBSD-10.0-RELEASE-amd64-dvd1.iso,

 >>> burn this file to a DVD, and boot the system with the DVD inserted.

So, yes I did look at the disc on the Mac after burning the .iso to  
the dvd. It has a copy of
the .iso file on it: I.E FreeBSD-10.1-RELEASE-amd64-dvd1.iso

I take it that that is not supposed to be the case? Have I  
misunderstood something here?
