Can you stop the boot process when it is searching for a boot device and
then manually select the boot device and add the ISL option? If you can get
to an ISL prompt then you should be able to boot in single user mode. I
have no idea if older HP 9000 systems have an ISL prompt, my experience is
limited to 9000/700 series systems.
