Follow the guide and install one of the latest "nightlies". These are the most recent updates of Android "Ice Cream Sandwich" (4.0.4). I am running the 20120903 version (from Sept 3rd). It is very stable and has all the fixes to date.

Here are the nightlies:
CyanogenMod Downloads

Since these are all custom builds for the Touchpad, there are no automatic updates. That said, there probably won't be any updates at all really as the CM team is focusing on building a newer version based on Android 4.1 (Jelly bean).

Follow these instructions:
[GUIDE] CM9 for your Touchpad

and get a CM9 Nightly from here (I've heard people have been happy with the 0903 buid:
CyanogenMod Downloads

Use the nightly where it says latest version of CM9.

P.S. Don't forget to install Google Apps!!!

If you rename a nightly build to add "update" to the beginning of the file, the cm9 guide should work fine for you with acme2 installer.

If you use acme3 installer, the cm9 nightly will work, but you need to add "update" to the beginning of the gApps file.

If you prefer, there are also installation instructions here:

[ROM] Official CyanogenMod 9 Nightly Build Discussion - CyanogenMod [HP Touchpad] - RootzWiki

or here:
