There is an entire book discussing wizards. Designing Effective Wizards: A Multidisciplinary Approach by Daina Pupons Wickham (Editor), Debra L. Mayhew, Teresa Stoll, Kenneth June Toley III, Shannon Rouiller. I have bought it, but haven't read much of it, so can't give an opinion.

Sir John, my apologies for not listing your company's link, but Amazon has this $50 book used starting at $3.50.

If a "wizard" requires documentation, I suggest putting the time and energy into improving the wizard. Wizards are essentially self-disclosing and interactive instructions, so having Help for a wizard is sort of like having a manual for the manual. (Which, of course, is sometimes done. Ugh.)
