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,  
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?
