Boot Advanced Options (msconfig)

I've been using the msconfig to take care of the applications I want to start up with the computer. However there is in the "Boot" tab a button for the in the title named. Is it worth using it and what do the different options do?

Number of processors is rather clear, but does it mean the physical number or the number of the cores?

Memory is clear.

Then there would be left the PCI Lock and Detect HAL, which I do not understand at all.

Great that was exactly what I was looking for. Thank you. I looked for hours, but I still could not find anything that would help me at all. It seems it is only useful, for troubleshooting.
