On most models, you should be able to use a null modem cable connected to the machine's serial port to get a console. Is this what you're trying to do?

Yes. Something like this? (FreeBSD headless installation). I have read it, not tried it yet. Can you find a guide for HP-UX? Another problem is, i think, that maybe i will have to make a floppy from a working HP-UX machine. Is this true? Because i don't have one.
