Question HP-UX - GSP command to boot from CD-ROM?

All - I have a pair of HP-UX boxes that I'd like to boot from CD-ROM in order to install old school v11.1.

Any way to do this from GSP?

Any help greatly appreciated.

I hope you have already solved the problem.
But by head:

Start the machine till you get the prompt where you can interrupt the boot sequence. Put the bootable cd in the drive.

Then you start a search for the bootable devices by:

scan boot

in the list you get back is perhaps the first item the cd/dvd

then start the boot from this drive by:
boot 1

This is for a pa-risc machine; if you have an Itanium the hole is completely different: no experience.
