I have retail ArmA2 on my OS drive (SSD) and my Steam version of OA on my E: drive where my steam games are installed (dont ask long story). Just add none steam game, steam will search for games on all your drives select ArmA2. Then to launch CA just right click on OA and steam will ask what you want to play either OA or CA select and boom done.

right click is your friend on steam.

Will this work for PR:A2. DO we need a sticky for installing or is this coverd in the read mw.

I have the retail version of ARMA 2 and the retail version of OA (so it's separated). Can I still play PR:ARMA 2???

I have read several different opinios on the whole "installation in one folder" matter.

To run Combined Ops, essentially all you have to do is run A2 as a mod, for example:
"C:\Games\Arma 2 OA\arma2oa.exe" "-mod=C:\Games\Arma 2"

PR's executable will do it for you.
So what will it be? Can someone tell with assurance?

Sorry for confusion, demon434 asked about both games being from DVD, normally these will install in the same directory as they use similar files. I'm no expert on this and my install is as above (both from DVD). If you have 1 version from Steam then things get a little more complicated but it will still work. There are plenty of threads on the PR:A2 forums on this subject.
