Is there any way to put some instructions for a custom post type inside the post admin at the top of the add/edit page?

I know you can put the instructions inside of a meta box, but at the top would be easier for the user to read....

You should be able to add help tabs with add_help_tab(). You'll need to filter which page you add it to based on the data returned by get_current_screen(), but that's simple.
