I don't think that there is an easy way do this. HP does have a package called ignite-ux that can be used to clone systems. It can make a bootable recovery tape and this tape can be booted on another system and used to completely install the OS. I have done this and it works, even if the user interface is a bit clunky. But I have been scanning the docs and I see no support for bootable CD's. Still this might be a starting point.

If you have ignite, it would be in /opt/ignite. If that is not there, you can download ignite for free from this page.

Yeah i purchased the system and it works fine, but when i went to mount the cd for the first time the cd would not mount, i mounted a regular cd withought any problems so its not the cdrom drive here is the command that i used
mount -F hfs /dev/dsk/C1t2d0 /SD_ROM

The -F hfs says that you have a cd with an hfs filesystem on it. HP will do that with install media so that they can squeeze cdfs out of the install kernel. That is very non-standard and no non-HP CD would be wriiten like that. Try -F cdfs instead.

Unable to read media

well this is what i think its says can not remember off the top of my head but here goes

unreadable media or unable to read from drive, or unrecognized file system, from /dev/dsk/xxxxx but when i mount a regular cd with the cdfs file system it works fine and on the hp ux cd it even says the it is HFS, and i have tryed to use the cdfs and it made no diffrence

I would be amazed if a windows system could read an hfs encoded cd, but I am not a windows expert.
