All the important settings are surrounded by carrets with the following color coding:

RAM. A decent starting value is
APICis required for SMP (more than two CPUs).
2Dacceleration is not used by the Spectacled Owl, however it is a good idea to offload anything possible to the video card and let the CPU deal with OpenSim (alas, no CUDA for OpenSim yet).
I/Ocache is a good idea for improving the disk throughput since the Spectacled Owl uses the
