Yes, that makes it rather difficult to try and find out what's wrong.

google also suggested it could be a permissions problem, but I mounted
the ISO as root and imported it as root. The Cobbler tutorials I have
found doesn't mention anything about mounting the ISO's in any special
way, so I got no idea how doto it differently.

I just ran rsync manually and it worked fine, as follows:

[root at intranet ~]# rsync -avp --progress /mnt/dvd/*
/var/www/cobbler/ks_mirror/Openfiler\ 2.3/

But now that image (is this what you call it?) isn't in the list when
I run "cobbler list":

[root at intranet ~]# cobbler list
image memtest86+
[root at intranet ~]#

In fact, I haven't been able to import anything into Cobbler yet.
