I also used this CD (a long long time ago) to install also a 712/60 and do
not met any problem (not mentionned in FAQ).
So the first think I would do before burning my CD is to check with md5sum
the imaged downloaded.
If it is Ok check the burned image (dd if=/dev/rdsk/c1t2d0 of=- | md5sum;
should work).

It should be that the begining of the CD is Ok but corrupted else where?

Goog luck,

PS: md5sum for hpux should be available near: <http://hpux.connect.org.uk/>
