Does anyone know of a way of getting a Delphi 2 database application to run
on a Windows 3.11 Machine with the Win32 Subset loaded.

The application works okay, but I'm having problems with the BDE.  The
application won't use the 16 bit BDE, already installed on the machine and I
can't get the 32 bit BDE to install or run on the PC.

32 bit BDE just plain won't work on win32s. Borland don't support  it, and I've never heard of anyone who found a way to make it work. I think the only way to run on Win 3.11 is to write a 16-bit version of your app, which is a real pain to do. Not good news I'm afraid.

Yes, I'm afraid that's what I've had to do!
