I'm sure Jason will have better information than me at some later
time but I would just start by ftp'ing a root image from,
then dd'ing it onto a spare DISK (strip one out of one of the other HP's
maybe) under Domain/OS, and then boot off that disk.  From there, you
have enough to actually go through the installation.

I know you can dd onto a disk under Domain/OS. The challenge is
translating from the "wN:0" designation to /dev/rdsk/w* designation.

It's been a long time since I've actually run Domain/OS so I can't 
quite remember.

Good luck.
