If you are talking about the little toggle switches on the board, they disable/enable PCI-E slots as nickbaldwin86 explained.
If you are asking in regards to my recent post, a PCI-E switch chip/or bridge chip, acts like a network switch. It takes the 16 PCI-E lanes provided by the CPU/Northbridge, and provides multiple x16 or x8 slots.
