I want to install 6 depots on HPUX using swinstall,
usually I use swinstall graphical interface, and I must change those three option :
1) Mount filesystems in /etc/fstab [ Disable ]
2) Reinstall filesets even if same revision exists [Enable]
3) Reinstall files even if same one already there [Enable]
Can I run swinstall (command line) and change those options within a script without using GUI ?

Enabling these 2 is not necessarily a good idea. There are some things that do not behave well if they are reinstalled. With HP-UX 11.0 PHKL_18543 was notoriously bad if you reinstalled it.
I would try doing your installation with items 2 and 3 DISABLED first.
