This is well documented in the FreeBSD Handbook which you can see online by
going to the FreeBSD web site.

It you are going to install from CD, then you can download the ISO[s]
using anonymous  ftp  from   ftp.freebsd.org

You will need to fish around (cd) in their directories a bit to find the
ISOs, but what you want is disc1 for version 6.3.
Download it to a machine with a CD burner.   Then burn the image
as it is.  Don't try to convert it to an ISO.  It is already an ISO.

If you do not have network access, then you will need to download the first
two CD ISOs and use them.

Plug in the CD and boot it and the adventure begins.

If you must boot from floppies, then download the two floppy images and
write them to formatted floppies as per the handbook instructions.

Boot them and go from there.  You will need network access.
