I want to store the username in a session and retrieve it later.  How would i do this? Or does the wizard store this value, and if so how to i retrieve from the wizard?

Thanks for any help.

Code I have:
Session[UserName] = UserName.Text;  // this does not work

replace it to
Session["UserName"] = UserName.Text;  

this line will come only once your user has been authenticated

the values from the createuserwizard cannot be retrieved directly as we have been trying to do

to fetch username we will have to use
Session["UserName"] = ((TextBox)CreateUserWizardStep1.ContentTemplateContainer.FindControl("UserName")).Text

please have a look at the sample from the MSDN site might be more helpful than i can be
