The general section describes which internal modules or plugins to load at startup. Most of them are required for normal operation of OPENCP so you should not remove any of the contents. All options listed in this section are loaded every time OPENCP starts! The default general section looks like:
  link=dos4gfix mmcmphlp poutput hardware inflate pfilesel \
       cpiface fstypes
;  datapath=   
;  tempdir=
this options describes the modules to load when starting OPENCP. There is no need to change this option, unless you have coded a basic internal module.

DOS4GW is a protected mode extender used by the watcom c++ compiler. However this extender has problems with IRQ greater than 7. If you use the default dos extender cplaunch you should disable this option. If you want to use DOS4GW for whatever reason and your soundcard uses an IRQ greater than 7 you have to enable this.
