Was is from a freebsd.org location?
For example, I generally download from    ftp.freebsd.org

Try booting it and see what it says.
Generally a third party will advertise their name on the boot screen.

The first CD in the set is essentially a 'live-cd' because you can
select that option - called 'fixit' from the initial menu.  Otherwise
it is also the installation CD and, if you have a good enough net
connection to a mirror site, can be used to do the whole installation.

Seems like a reasonable thing to do.

That is pretty small.   At the bare minimum level, you might be
able to get it up and running, but not be able to do much of any
real work on it without more memory.   

You didn't mention the amount of disk on the machine, but if you want 
to run X (needed for a Gui) then it will take more that a couple of GB 
and if you want KDE or Gnome to manage your Gui, it will take even more.

I don't remember if Pentium I will do the trick or not, but probably
will, just awfully slowly.

Good luck,
