I remember trying to figure that out too but all I could come up with was  
setting the primary monitor and using that. The number and arrangement of  
monitors I have changes depending on my location so this wasn't a perfect  
solution for me but might do what you need.

     <!-- 'Smart' or 'UnderMouse' -->
     <!-- whether to place windows in the center of the free area found or
            the top left corner -->
     <!-- with Smart placement on a multi-monitor system, try to place new  
              on: 'Any' - any monitor, 'Mouse' - where the mouse is,  
'Active' - where
              the active window is, 'Primary' - only on the primary monitor  
     <!-- The monitor where Openbox should place popup dialogs such as the
              focus cycling popup, or the desktop switch popup.  It can be  
an index
              from 1, specifying a particular monitor.  Or it can be one of  
              following: 'Mouse' - where the mouse is, or
                         'Active' - where the active window is -->
