Also mods don't go into your "my docs" folder. They go in your main Arma 2 directory. e.g. C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\arma 2
As of ArmA 2 1.05 they can go in your My Documents folder. This is so that you can use and update mods without all the nightmare nonsense involved in having them under Program Files and Windows constantly demanding admin rights to do anything.
