You can find it in the Win 3.x API help file.

RegCreateKey      Creates a specified key
RegDeleteKey      Deletes a specified key
RegEnumKey      Enumerates the subkeys of a specified key
RegOpenKey      Opens a specified key
RegQueryValue      Retrieves the text string for a specified key
RegSetValue      Associates a text string with a specified key

function RegSetValue(Key: HKey; SubKey: PChar; ValType: Longint; Value: PChar; cb: Longint): Longint;
Remember to include the ShellAPI unit!

Here's an example:
uses ShellAPI;

begin
  if RegSetValue(HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, '.wav\(Default)', REG_SZ, 'SoundRec', SizeOf('SoundRec')) <> ERROR_SUCCESS then Error;
end.

Good Luck
