NetBSD 2.0 for hp c360- problem with booting the cd

I recently acquired an hp c360 and downloaded the hp300cd.iso of NetBSD 2.0. The site is . However the cd booting procedure halts with the following message "IPL error: bad LIF magic". The person who provided me the workstation says "The HP doesn't like the file format of the CD. Are you sure it's the HP version of NetBSD?". Either I, or he don't know more, although i believe i downloaded the right iso. Can somebody please confirm it, or tell me what is going wrong?

Not all images in this directory are directly bootable on each
architecture! However, all architectures are provided for convenience,
and do include the necessary software for building boot media.

The following architectures will boot directly from CD-ROM:

alpha, amd64, cats, i386, macppc, pmax, sparc, sparc64, sun2, sun3, vax
It is not a bootable CD. You need to make proper boot media. Usually that involved floppy disks but I would go read the proper install documents for that version to be sure.
