DVSMC,
Wina20.386 is a DOS 5 file that is required for running Windows 3.0 in enhanced mode with DOS=HIGH in the config.sys. (It is supposedly no longer used by Windows 3.1).
Windows looks for Wina20.386 when it is loading in the root of the the boot drive *UNLESS* you include "switches =/W" in your config.sys file, *and* specify "device = c:\yourpath\wina20.386" under the [386Enh] section header of system.ini to tell windows where to find this driver.
Hope that helped.
