I should hope pfs_mount would not work. Its an awful technology and should only be used if there is no alternative.
I think you'll have to either burn the image to an actual DVD or mount the image on a Linux or Solaris host and then NFS export it to HP-UX.

You cannot mount the iso file directly here is the steps
Here are the steps to mount the ISO file on HP-UX 11i:
Find out the size of the ISO image:
# du -k /tmp/test.iso
NOTE: The size will be in Kb.
Create a logical volume to hold the ISO image:
# lvcreate -L
NOTE: The name of the logical volume will be /dev/vg00/iso
Copy the ISO file to the raw logical volume:
# dd if=/tmp/test.iso of=/dev/vg00/riso bs=64k
Create a temporary directory and mount the /dev/vg00/iso volume:
# mkdir /iso_image
# mount /dev/vg00/iso /iso
NOTE: For HP-UX 11.11 you must install the latest CDFS patches:
PHCO_25841 Add Rock Ridge extension to mount_cdfs(1M)
PHKL_26269 Rock Ridge extension for ISO-9660
PHKL_34153 CDFS cumulative patch
