If by setting up wins you mean passing your WINS-server on as a
DHCP-parameter: No, only a DNS server.

If you mean using m0n0wall as a WINS-server: totally not. M0n0wall is
designed to be a firewall product (I know, there have been infinite
discussions about this subject) and because of that design, is extremely
~ good at that. Adding a WINS server would compromise that design.

What you could have a look at, is m0n0bsd (http://m0n0.ch/bsd/). As
small as m0n0wall, but more general and thus capable of supporting Samba
(which you would need for WINS support).

Cheers,

Michael
