Should not be that hard, here is what I have in my personal wiki:

My Home directory is getting cluttered so I decided to try to change  
the directory ( default was my home directory) to the Desktop.

The meager readme offered

   * Save received files to the path specified in the
   /apps/gnome-obex-server/savedir GConf key

I eventually noticed that I had a .gconf directory in my home directory.

Following the models therein I

Created a directory named gnome-obex-server.
In that directory I created the file %gconf.xml
The file contents look like
    <?xml version="1.0"?>
         <entry name="savedir" mtime="1144755883" type="string">
I rebooted and did a transfer from the mac and the result was left on  
my desktop.

Apr 15, 2006 gconf-editor

Today I took a closer look at the gnome configuration editor.

I found that simply creating a key would create the above XML file  
and would allow me to set the value.

I also peered into the file /etc/gconf/schemas/gnome-obex-server and  
saw that there was another key that could be created.

This key if true will pop up a notification dialog for incoming traffic.
