Default FreeBSD installation CD with Fixit?

Im looking for a FreeBSD installation CD (at least capable to install minimum base) with Fixit. When I run the 7.0 installation CD I downloaded and enter Fixit mode, it asked me for another CD

Does this kind of CD exist?

cd 1 has base system + some packages but no fixit tools
fixit disk has fixit tools, but no distributions & packages....


you need 2 disks, or search for FreeBSD dvd.... (someone did mention addresses here on forum, somewhere)

Bsddaemon, you have been brainwashed that operating systems only can be installed from CD's

See http://daemonforums.org/showthread.php?t=1538 for an alternative approach.
I always download the installation sets to a local FTP server, and use that server during the install. You can do something similar with packages.
Or install them from an USB device.

Well I know it could be install from ftp server, but just in case someday I need to reinstall the system again and the network connection is really bad (shaped because go over quota, or new system without ethernet driver for example).

I guess I will stick with Fixit disk. In case I need to reinstall, I just restore the dump file
