If you have a cable connection (something I suspect as you're going to
run a web server) every tool needed is in the FreeBSD system itself.

Just install FreeBSD, then...

# cd /usr/ports/www/your favourite apache distribution
# make
# make install

This retrieves the sources and dependencies, compiles it and installs
the web server.

Take a look at http://www.freebsd.org/ports/index.html for even more
easily installed applications/servers.

If you on the other hand do not have a cable connection I'm not sure
of what's on those CD's. :-)
