I think you can also install mkisofs on HP-UX.

You may find links to from where to get the latest sources here:

Since we don't have any HP-UX workstation, but only enterprise servers, there is no way for us to make and burn images on HP-UX (lack of CD burner).
We instead do it on a Linux PC.

Of course, it is totally dependant on what sort of image you want to create.
When you have a look at the mkisofs manpage you will notice almost hundreds of options that give you an enormous amount of flexibility.

However, most times something like this suffices:

mkisofs -vrTJ -hide-joliet-trans-tbl -o /path/to/your/image.iso /mount/point/to/save

(see manpage for explanation of options)

Afterwards you may first check the image by mounting it on a loop device (this feature seems only to be available on Linux, I asked here in the forum for something similar on HP-UX but got no reply)

mount -t iso9660 -o loop /path/to/your/image.iso /some/mountpoint

After you have checked and unmounted it again you may burn it on CD-ROM

cdrecord -v -isosize -fs=4m speed=8 dev=0,1,0 /path/to/your/image.iso

Note, to adjust your device, fifo size, and speed options to your hardware.

With

cdrecord -scanbus

you may find out what device your burner is accessed through.

But as said, this is how it can be done under Linux.
