FreeBSD swithed to bsdinstall. It is the default installation mechanism
unless you switch to $SHELL and run commands.

Graphical desktops are included. I can list the packages on
10.3-DVD.iso under packages directory. It has three distinct
directories: FreeBSD:10:amd64, FreeBSD:10:x86_64 and repos

Packages are all set up with repo config and etc. You can run pkg which
is already installed. pkg -R < repo conf dir> will load the
configuration from DVD (directiories are mentioned above). Run "pkg add
xorg xorg-apps ..." It will install all packages from DVD.

I hope it works.
