I have spent quit some time making openbox and lxde work well on old slow hardware. I'll post my configuration files for folks to view, test tweak and offer advice on.
the openbox rc.xml

Main keys

F12 = AddDesktopCurrent
F11 = RemoveDesktopCurrent

Ctl+Alt+left arrow-key = switch to next desktop on the left
Ctl+Alt+right arrow-key = switch to next desktop on the right

Alt+Shift+left arrow-key = Move current application to next desktop on the left
Alt+Shift+right arrow-key = Move current application to next desktop on the right

Alt+z = show openbox menu
Alt+x = show openbox workspaces and all running applications (multiple desktops)
Alt+Tab = show all open applications superimposed above windows (tab through them to select)

Meta+ a to z each letter is and application launcher. Just add your favorite apps to the letter you remember them by

Note: Meta key is also wrongly known as the "Windows key"
I noticed that stuff was being stripped from the rc.conf file so reposted wth html/bbcobe off. This may be why you were having problems veganix?

thanks for share!
I'm active user of openbox too and I'll try your configs later :)

Add and remove fails on openbox as there is no pop up to enter your root password.

"Authorization failed"

"You have failed to provide the correct authentication ......."
I take it gksu needs to be added somewhere in the menu.xml. Or stolen from lxde. I tried adding the lxde menus for. "Applications", "Preferences" and "administration-menu" all worked fine but no Authorization box. Anyone know what triggers the pop up?

Fixed.!!!You need to add this to your autostart.sh in your .openbox directory. Then restart openbox. I had to log out and back in.

Of course you can change all these setting if you like or if they conflict with other applications. Just copy the file in the post above to a file named rc.xml and place it in your /home/username/.config/openbox/ directory. Then you can edit it for that user. Hint: CTL-h will show the hidden .config directory (any file that starts with a "." is hidden)

I’ve tried to make them newbie friendly and easy to remember whilst group the most used keys.

Refer to the open box website for detailed instructions.
http://openbox.org/wiki/Main_Page
Also urukrama's very good guide
http://urukrama.wordpress.com/openbox-guide/

Basics:
Keyboard short cut settings: Modifier keys C=CTL A=Alt S=Shift W=Windows M=Meta. Function keys=F1/F12.

Note you will use the arrow keys alot!

The most used keys are:
Menus:
ALT+z (openbox menu)
ALT+x (openbox view active desktops and applications)
ALT+c (openbox client menu)

Viewing and moving:
ALT+tab (Tab through all open applications: to the right)
ALT+b (toggle boarder)
ALT+d (toggle show/hide desktop)
ALT+f (toggle full screen)
ALT+F4 (close active window)
ALT+Escape (send active window to the bottom of the open windows stack)
CTL+ALT-Righ/Left (Move to desktop on the Right/left)
SHIFT+ALT-Righ/Leftt (Send active window to desktop on the Right/left)
F12 (add new desktop)
F11 (remove desktop)

Launching applications:
Windows-key+ a-z (edit as required)

A bit more detail:
Show openbox menu: Note the Root menu is the openbox menu.xml : Note use arrow keys!
keybind key="A-z"

Show all desktops and active applications menu: Note use arrow keys!
keybind key="A-x"

Show Openbox window menu on active window:
remember c 4 client-menu: Note the client menu is the openbox bar drop down menu: Note use arrow keys!
keybind key="A-c"

Iconify active window:
remember i 4 iconify: use A-Tab to raise
keybind key="A-i"

Move the current window to Center:
remember M 4 Move:
keybind key="A-m"

Resize the current window: Note use arrow keys!
remember r 4 resize:
keybind key="A-r"

Toggle Maximize Full screen on/off:
remember f 4 full screen:
keybind key="A-f"

Toggle window decoration on/off:
remember b 4 border:
keybind key="A-b"

Show Desktop toggle on/off:
remember d 4 desktop:
keybind key="A-d"

Lower active window to the bottom of the window stack
keybind key="A-Escape

Keybindings for desktop switching

Move to desktop on the Right: Note use arrow keys!
keybind key="C-A-Right"

Move to desktop on the left: Note use arrow keys!
keybind key="C-A-Left"

Send active window to desktop on the left. And follow it!: Note use arrow keys!
keybind key="S-A-Left"

Send active window to desktop on the right. And follow it!: Note use arrow keys!
keybind key="S-A-Right"

Switch to desktop (number)-- Note I rarely use this a C-A-Left or C-A-Right arrow is easier

Switch to desktop (number 1)
keybind key="W-F1"

Switch to desktop (number 2)
keybind key="W-F2"

Switch to desktop (number 3)
keybind key="W-F3"

Switch to desktop (number 4)
keybind key="W-F4"

Screen capture Gnome
keybind key="A-S-Print"

Tab through all open applications: to the right
keybind key="A-Tab"

Tab through all open windows: to the Left
keybind key="A-S-Tab"

Tab through all open Desktops: to the right
keybind key="C-A-Tab"

Remove current desktop and go to next available: Open applications auto switch to next Desktop
keybind key="F11"

Add new desktop to current position
keybind key="F12"

Keyboard application launcher short cuts: W modifier plus one letter a-z per application
