Default Installation cd boot problem

I have a small yet serious problem to start my freebsd life.
I never had to burn the ISO files to a cd coz I had a dialup net so I have never been downloading these files from the net. Now when I have adsl, I have downloaded v7.0 disc1,2 and 3 but I'm having problems to make it bootable.
I have tried following:
1. Extracted the files from ISO with winrar and burn down the files in Nero.
2. Burned down the ISO file in Nero...
In both cases it just skips to boot the cd to start the installation.
I know this is a newbie problem but it's really new to me.
So if anyone can help... Yes it's set in BIOS to boot from Cd...
What do I do wrong?
Thanx in advance.
Sorry for my bad english.

I have msi k8n neo motherboard, athlon 2800+, 1gb...
Please help.
