As long as you don't run latest 11.31 you cannot. Consider to burn it or unpack it or present it via NFS.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: How can I mount an .iso file ?

Shalom Carmen,

Here is how I do it.

I put the iso image on a Linux system.

I mount it, share it and access it via NFS.

Example: mycd.iso

As root
I put it in Linux /tmp

mkdir /iso/

mount -o loop /tmp/mycd.iso /iso/

Now its mounted in Linux

I edit /etc/exports on Linux and add /iso/ as a share.

service nfs.server restart.

Now on HP-UX:

mkdir /iso/
mount -F nfs linuxserver:/iso /iso

done.

Re: How can I mount an .iso file ?

On HP-UX 11.31 you need to install ISOIMAGE-ENH
http://software.hp.com/portal/swdepot/displayProductInfo.do?productNumber=ISOIMAGE-ENH

activate module
#kcmodule fspd=loaded

no reboot required
after that mount via
mount -F /absolute/path/image.iso /mount/point
