Dual head display problem and setting resolution


My video card is ATI Radeon 9550 and I have the fglrx driver installed and enabled, I have 2 monitors connected to it.

I have also installed the ATI control panel. Right now the dual screen setting is in "clone" mode. However, nothing would take place when I change the dual screen mode, even after rebooting. Do I need to add anything to the /etc/X11/xorg.conf? If yes what should I add?

And also, how do I change screen resolution? My display was 1024*768 before tinkered with the display and now it is 800*600.

For some unknown reason, through numerous rebooting, the screen has gone back to 1024*768 by itself.

This is my screen section. Do I have to add a line something like "DefaultModes"?

Code:
Section "Screen"
	Identifier	"Default Screen"
	Device		"Sapphire ATI Radeon 9550"
	Monitor		"Philips 107S8"
	DefaultDepth	24
	SubSection "Display"
		Depth		1
		Modes		"1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
	EndSubSection
	SubSection "Display"
		Depth		4
		Modes		"1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
	EndSubSection
	SubSection "Display"
		Depth		8
		Modes		"1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
	EndSubSection
	SubSection "Display"
		Depth		15
		Modes		"1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
	EndSubSection
	SubSection "Display"
		Depth		16
		Modes		"1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
	EndSubSection
	SubSection "Display"
		Depth		24
		Modes		"1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
	EndSubSection
EndSection

There is another problem.

The system would boot up fine is clone mode and login to the default account that I specified. However, if I were to log out to the login screen, one of the screen would go crazy, and would stay crazy till I rebooted.
