Before I could answer your question, I would like to
know if the developers have provided a help button for
each screen in the wizard as the user clicks the Next

If your answer is yes, then you can capture the use
and pre-requisites of the wizard for the first
introduction screen of the wizard and for the
subsequent screens, write context sensitive help. For
example, when I launch the wizard, I may click on the
Help to see the use and pre-requisites for running the
wizard. When I click on the Next button and am on Step
1 screen, I would like to see the help information
pertaining to Step 1 only and so on.

If your answer is No and you want to provide one help
file, which covers the whole procedure, you can write
the help file, which captures

* Use of the procedure
* Pre-requisites for executing the procedure
* Procedure (Steps)
* Result of the procedure

in that order.

Hope this helps.
