FC3 + XWindows -setting default resolution

I'm using Fedora 3 with IceWM window manager. The screen section of my xorg.conf file is given below. My problem is I want to start XWindows in 800x600 as the 'default' resolution. Some applications doesn't fit in the screen in 800x600, in that case I want to switch to 1024x768 resolution using CTRL ,ALT,+ key combination. Is this possible?. Under the current setting it always starts at 1024x768 resolution.


Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Videocard0"
Monitor "Monitor0"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 16
Modes "800x600" "640x480"
