FreeBSD per se does not have any distribution.
FreeBSD only puts out the ISO-s that are available free on
the main or one of the mirror sites.

There are some companies that pick up the ISO images and make
a distribution.   That is permitted under the FreeBSD license.
Usually they sell it for a bit over cost and include a printed
version of the Handbook.   Most of them contribute a portion of
their receipts back to the FreeBSD foundation to help in development.

So, either you can convince one of the packaging companies - they are
listed in the web site - to make a DVD distibution or you can start
doing it and selling it yourself.
