You need to download and burn the Live CD Iso, it will boot and offer the option to install to HD.
Follow this guide: http://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/HOWTO

The .img files are Embedded Images that will not work as bootables:

(Their difference references the size of the flash card, I guess)

Take your time.
I'll be on X-mas holidays and not available for further questions, but I'm sure that all will be fine if you stick to the two links I posted.
