I followed the section in the man page which was entitled "NORMAL WORKFLOW"
which seemed to indicate that you should import a local DVD using:
cobbler import --mirror=root at localhost:/mnt/dvd
Or that was my interpretation! I will look at the man page more thoroughly
and import the DVD using the --path option as you mention above.
Thanks for your help.
