Hi:

The latest 11.31 OE version would be from March 2010 and with a software contract available to you via SUM at no cost:

You have a choice of an upgrade or a cold-installation. You need to choose base on your environment and its management. See:

The latest full installation guide I see on the "new and improved" HP documentation website is from September 2009 [though this is quite current]:

See my response above.
