free vmware ESXi

If I understand  Vmware ESXi is free to download
Does it get installed on a bare metal or it is installed on top of an OS such as Microsoft?
how it is different than the non Free ESXi edition?

thanks

I have seen an installation of ESXi on a bare metal, I remember it came up with IP address automatically, how did it get that IP address? if it is  from DHCP , it should have DHCP client first installed to contact the DHCP server. Correct?

so how did it get the IP address automatically?
