Press ESC to stop the auto-boot.
When the list of boot devices is presented:

  b PX ISL        (where X is your root disc)

And at the ISL> prompt:

  HP-UX9.x:     ISL>  hpux -iS disc(;0)/hp-ux
  HP-UX-10.x:    ISL>  hpux -iS disc(;0)/stand/vmunix

The '-iS' are the flags to init which says come up single user.  The rest
of the command is what the bootprocess does automatically.
