First off, welcome to FreeBSD. To add to what the others have stated, take  
a look at http://www.freebsd.org/releases/7.2R/announce.html

Basically, you would use the DVD image or if you only have a CD drive,  
just 'disc1.iso'. If you need additional packages and don't have an  
internet connection on the machine you are installing FreeBSD, then you  
may want to get disc2 and disc3 as they contain other, third party,  
packages ready for use with FreeBSD.

Hope that helps
