F^I isomorphic to finite(F^I)

Hi,

Let F be a field, and I be a set. Denote by finite(F^I) the set of
functions from I to F which are non-zero only for finitely many i in I.

Claim
-----

F^I is isomorphic (as a vector space over F) to finite(F^I) if and only
if I is finite.

Thoughts
--------

In addition to the proof, some interesting questions arise:

1) What is the cardinality of F^I?

2) What could be a basis for F^I?

3) What is the dimension of F^I?
