if you are connecting it by the USB cable, then just insert the USB cable and install the drivers from 'Device Manager' using the CD. once the drivers are installed, the installation will start automatically. if you cancel it, then that'll be fine also.

For wireless, there is a way to manually install the printer without running the HP installation SW (this is the way I run HP printers at home).
This will get you printing but not scanning. Tell me what type of computer you have and the type of network and I can show you how to do this.
If you want scanning to work from the PC, then you'll need to install the SW.
There are other options as well. If you go here, you can download smaller version of the printer SW.
