Eww... That process sounds a little scary quite honestly. I would double check first and foremost that the hardware you are using can support 8.6. If I am not mistaken, it has beefy memory and CPU requirements, and if you are running 4.1, I would imagine the MCS server is pretty old. Also, going from 4.1 to 8.6 I believe you will have to do a stepped upgrade. I can't remember exactly, but my guess is you would have to go from 4.1 to 5.x then to 8.6...or something similiar.
I have done this migration before with new hardware with much help from these boards (thanks again Rob!) and you have to make sure you do your research. Check those links Rob provided.
I think your biggest challenge will be hardware compatibility of 8.6 on your existing server and obtaining the proper media to install 7.x.
To answer your specific questions:
- How can i get 7.1 installation cd?
This should be part of the upgrade kit you'll receive. Discuss this with your Cisco partner when ordering the upgrade licensing, etc.
- Which p/n and which steps i need to complete migration from 7.1 to 8.6?
Once you get to 7.1 going to 8.6 is a piece of cake. Just go to OS Administration, install upgrade, and point it to where ever you have the 8.6 media (iso image via ftp, dvd) and that's it for the OS.
Make sure you plan everything and have the proper media versions, license info, etc. before starting out.
Also, you don't mention anything for voicemail. If you're not using voicemail that's not an issue. If you are you need to make sure that whatever you're using will be compatible with CUCM 8.6. If you're using Unity that was installed at the same time as your 4.1 CUCM server you'll need to upgrade that as well.
Review your entire telephony environment and evaluate how upgrading just the CUCM server will affect everything else. You don't want to have a successful upgrade of CUCM turn into a disaster because now voicemail doesn't work or because now faxing is broken.

The short answer is that you don't.... That isn't entirely true while at
the same time it kind of is, but for the most part you don't configure
the softkeys. You enable or disable them via TCL. Here is the long
