I'm not sure what you mean by "drop the CD iso images" under NFS.

In any case, I'd prefer to use cobbler, as it seems the simplest way to go,
once it is set up,
and I'm thinking of installing CentOS-6 later, when it arrives.

So I'll repeat my query, which as far as I can see no-one has answered:
how do I use cobbler with 8 CD ISOs?
To be specific, what exactly do I "cobbler import"?
