For older computers (with only CD burners), are these still the only existing instructions? Once its running, is what you can/can't do summarized somewhere?

From a working Puppy:

1. Download the multi-session live-CD iso file 'puppy-firefox-1.0.0alpha-multisession.iso'
2. Run the 'CD/DVD drive Wizard' (Setup menu) to choose your burner drive, which will require a reboot
3. 'Run Gcombust', the CD-burner program (multi-media menu)
4. Go to the 'Burn' tab, add the source multi-session iso file location file
5. Untick 'Dummy test run'
6. Leave 'Pad' ticked
7. tick 'Multi session' and 'Use data' in the Multisession section
8. Click 'Detect SCSI drive' then 'Check SCSI settings'
(which will bring up a little confirmation box with an OK button -- click on that)
If you need to erase a CD-RW, be sure to choose "All" then hit "Blank CD" button. When ready to burn, click the "Burn" tab.

Or, it can be done entirely from the commandline:

1. Download multi-session iso.
2. Run "CD/DVD drive Wizard" (which requires a reboot).
3. This will find the device numbers, for example 0,0,0:
# cdrecord -scanbus
or # cdrecord -scanbus dev=ATAPI (in which case, the device will be dev=ATAPI:0,0,0)
This will burn the iso to CD (substitute device numbers for 0,0,0):
cdrecord -multi -data -eject -v speed=4 dev=0,0,0 puppy-1.0.0alpha-firefox-multisession.iso

I'm pretty sure those instructions are out of date. For one thing, SCSI emulation is no longer the default used by Puppy. I've had good luck burning multisession on DVD+RW with "burniso2cd" in the "Start->Multimedia" menu. I assume it will burn multisession CDs as well. You could do a dry run to see what choices it offers.

The Developer News page has the info you need, in the release notes for
1.0.6.
It refers to instructions further down the page, it also has a link to the
Multisession Puppy web page.
