Who are you deliverying to? They should provide specifications that should make this clear.
I've provided elements on a feature doc for a digital cinema package and simply provided the facility with the appropriate individual audio files that were provided to me by the sound design guy.

my question is related info about thr general work flow, lets say for theatrical destinations.
when is envolved hardware like dolby e, and what APPLE COMPRESSOR CAN DO.

If you're deliverying a project cut in fcp for theatrical distribution, more than likely you need to deliver a Dgital Cinema Package and if you use a 3rd party to make the DCP, they'll take the audio files that you've mixed appropriately in Logic (or ProTools, or where ever) and encode it properly. I did find some resources about how to make the digital cinema package so you might want to do some googling. It's pretty arcane stuff and I doubt you're gonna find this info here. But who knows...
I think generally compressor would be useful for creating dvd's with dolby 5:1 tracks. Don't think it's gonna be useful for DCP's or Film prints.

So, interestingly enough, I've just been wrangling a feature film for a digital cinema package with a dolby 5.1 surround track. The facility making the dcp gave me specific directions on how to mux the 6 audio tracks with the final video output as a quicktime in fcp. I can give you that track layout if you want, but more than likely you need to discuss this with the facility doing the DCP. That said, I followed their instructions and they managed to screw up the first DCP with the audio drifiting out of synch. The second time, they screwed up the track assigments. Luckily, I had insisted to the director that we needed to screen the dcp before his big screening.

yes if you want to share your successfull setup and specification I woud be happy

These are the specific specs requested by a specific facility. They requested a quicktime with the surround sound tracks muxed (combined with the video) in this fashion. The other DCP's I've delivered either had stereo tracks or we supplied seperate audio files for each surround sound channel. So I wouldn't use these without talking to the facility making the DCP.
