Please i want your help for a issue.
I have a HP c8000 workstation which has already the HP-UX operating system.
My question is if i can setup a linux system (fedora or other) on this machine.

It depends on the hardware for the machine. If it's just a PC underneath all that you should have no problems getting something going.
If it'll boot off the CD, you could always try a live CD version of Fedora. That would let you know for certain and not be invasive.Linux user #126863 - see http://linuxcounter.net/

The hardware is deprecated.
Its specs say, it has one or two pa-risc cpus.
So no, you cannot use one of the "mainstream" live CDs, as they are made for x86 cpus.
Traditionally, debian is available for a wide range of architectures, and indeed: The pa-riscs were supported for a while:
Debian -- PA-RISC Port
But no longer now, debian dropped that support.
So if you want to play, you probably can get a linux to run on it.
But dont expect a straightforward installation.
Maybe this is a start:
