As I understand it, HP-UX doesn't really do partitioning.  You have a
choice of either using a whole disk for a file system, or you can use
the logical volume manager.  From what I've seen, most of the people
who use LVM also use VxFS (or JFS, a journalling filesystem).  It
would probably be easiest then to just try to support HFS (HP's
version of UFS, I think) using a whole disk.
