Put it all on one page and use JS in the template to toggle different divs?
Having dealt with some large forms recently(and depending on how heavy the JS is on the page), this can result in browser slowdowns in some environments. Probably the simplest approach is to incrementally update the database, and keep the current primary key for the record somewhere in the form (in a hidden field) or in the url. If you don't want to insert until everything is finished, then storing everything previously entered in hidden fields is also a reasonable approach in some situations.
