Sure. You may have to more the stitches around to fit them on one needle (or you may need to put them on 2 of the dpns). Keep one dpn out to use as your working needle.
GG linked to a good video for the basics of what you're doing and where you're headed with these stitches.

To slip 1 purlwise (sl 1p), insert the right needle as if to purl and then just move the stitch to the right needle. If you click the GLOSSARY button at the top of the page and scroll down you can find the entry and choose which video you wish to watch. The number of DPNs you use won't really effect the way the heel is worked. Except for the stitches that you use to create the heel flap, the rest will just hang around and wait patiently for you to get back to them.

I am working on this don't understand this Sl1p, purl 23, turn (you should have 24 sts on a needle now and you will only be working on these sts for now)

After you end your current round you start the next one but only knit 12 stitches of it. You then turn and slip 1p, purl the remaining 11 stitches that you just knitted, and then purl another 12 stitches for a total of 24. You'll be incorporating 12 stitches from your previous round.

I hope this answers your question, I'm really not certain what's confusing you. Did the video help at all? Once you see what it is you want to do, it should be pretty easy for you. Getting the concept in the first place is the hardest part, at least IME.
