Since 1.0.1 there is only one modfolder you should use. No matter if you run Arma 2 Standalone, Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead or Arma 2: Combined Operations (Arma 2 + Arma 2: OA), you always install the @CBA_CO folder!
Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead Beta patch 100697 (or higher!) is required and with the beta game content in Expansion/beta loaded by way of: -beta=Expansion\beta;Expansion\beta\Expansion
@CBA_CO => Main mod folder
@CBA_CO/store/function_library.tar => Tar archive of the the function/macro reference.
@CBA_CO/store/keys => BIkeys for dedicated servers signature protection
@CBA_CO/store/optional => Optional (diagnostic logging/performance) additions. Not recommended for production use
