Power Install cd won't work

Hi! I'm sure that somebody here installed freeBSD from a download of a virtual disc (.iso). But I made 5 downloads of 5 differents freeBSD installation (and no one has worked).Can somebody tell me where to download and how (if needed) to prepare the cd?

You'll have to be a bit more specific on "does not work"? Are you trying to install BSD in a virtual machine or a physical machine? Did you burn the image to disc, if so, how? What files are shown when you insert the disc to a working machine?

-No one has worked=installs(no one wans to boot when on the cd).
-I am trying to install it on a physical machine.
-I've extracted the files with WIN RAR and put them on the cd.

And for the last question, I need first to know how to put images that are on my computer into a message.

Don't extract them with anything. .iso files are CD images, containing more than just the files that can be extracted, but also non-file information that is required to boot the CD. Instead, open your burning program, and choose an option that sounds like "Burn image to disc". Then choose the downloaded image, burn it (including closing the CD), and boot from that.

If it's just simple image burning/manual backups: InfraRecorder (GPL'd)
