This is the verbatim text from the FreeBSD handbook I have a copy of:
FreeBSD installation files are available at www.freebsd.org/where.html#download
Each installation file's name includes the release version of FreeBSD,
and the type of file. For example, to install FreeBSD 10.0 on an amd64
system from a DVD,
>>> 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?
