I would respectfully disagree with chris_calabrese that patches are independent - Many HP patches depend on other patches being installed (dependencies will automatically be selected for installation), so a patch to resolve an LVM problem may select patches to update C libraries which may cause problems with applications :( PS, if you run into problems with space in /var, you can move /var/spool/sw/patch to another filesystem & replace it with a link to the new location.
