    Nero or Deepburner should do it for you.

    .iso is here:

    amd64

    Download FreeNAS from SourceForge.net

    and

    i386

    I found this guide very useful, though it still took a couple of reinstalls to get it right!

    worked it out in the end and had it up and running fairly happily as a nas box and as an 100gb iscsi device drive z on my win7 box and file copies werent that slow 20mb /sec (500mb file that just happened to be on my desktop) and thats with the target pc having a pos 100mb realtek in it might have to do some proper work on freenas/iscsi over easter (along with 2008r2 ts and mst2010 and 2 server installs lol)

    after messing around im more convinced than before iscsi is a good way to go now just need to get a less rubbish test system and shove it in a school with an 08 server
