Forget that approach. You have two choices ... read the header files
on the HP-UX machine, and reverse engineer the filesystem. I think
it's close to the berkeley FFS. Or, mount the MO's on an hpux machine,
and access them via NFS on the Linux box. There is no public implementation
of the HP-HFS filesystem that I know of. The only place there might be
is in the NetBSD camp, where they support the HP300 platforms. Try
http://www.netbsd.org/ (I think).
