How do I set up WINS?

A. WINS is a server service.
Go to Control Panel->Network->Services and install the Windows Internet Name Service.

If you have any non-WINS clients, add them in as static name->IP mappings.
Configure a WINS Proxy Agent if needed.
Configure WINS support on your DHCP server.

NT Workstation TCP/IP->Properties->WINS add the IP address of the WINS server (and your also the secondary should point to itself).
