One line answer...To all the decisions you have made
My instructions are:

Detail the problems you perceived, the issues surrounding them, your value judgments, and the decisions that you made. This document should also describe any uncertainties you had regarding the project, and the decisions you made when resolving them.

So, I think we have to document in detail of all the decisions we have made in the process of solving.
Good Luck.

Hi Long,
It is easier to write your design decisions document as you are developing the project. That way each time you make a major decision it will get entered into the document. It is always harder to go back after the project is over and try and remember what choices you made.
But now that is what you are going to have to do: try and remember what choices you made. For example, you had to choose between RMI and Serialized objects over Sockets. So you should put in your document which you chose, and why.
It might help you to look at your recent posts, and see if any of them resulted in a design decision. For example, I see one of your threads is titled "Can I display the record No. in the client GUI?" - presumably you made a decision on whether to display the record numbers or not.
Good luck.
Regards, Andrew
