Perhaps a better way is to take a lesson from the way property pages work within a property sheet in Windows (and a lot of other implementations I've seen): instead of using multiple forms, use one form with the Previous and Next buttons (or whatever you want to call them), along with a collection of user controls that represent the property pages. You can code the logic in the form to add and remove the controls when you click the Previous or Next buttons by adding and removing them from the container (perhaps use a Panel above the buttons). The buttons could also be disabled or hidden when you reach the beginning or the end of the collection of pages.

There's many ways to evolve this method, but it's pretty much done the same way in Windows. If you've done any Win32 programming, take a look at the documentation for the IPropertyPage interface. There's links to other helpful documentation in there. You could use a similar mechanism where the controls you will host must implement a similar interface in order for them to communicate with the property sheet (same goes for a Wizard, actually, like you're doing), or for the property sheet to abstractly communicate with them (through this IPropertyPage-like interface) without knowing specific types.

There should be several articles here on CP that outline this approach. Just search for "wizard" or "property pages" or something like that. You could also try google to find some examples.
