How to make permanent display settings changes on OpenSUSE?


I'm using OpenSUSE as a guest OS in VMware. Display settings are 1400x1050@60Hz but I want to change them for 1440x900.

Using root account I go to Configure Desktop -> Display -> 1440x900. The first problem is that I can't choose 60Hz, only "Auto" or "0.0".

I click Apply and the resolution changes, but if I reboot the computer or just logoff... resolution goes back to 1400x1050. Any idea?

My card and monitor properties:

Another strange thing is that if I click Ok on the Card and Monitor properties (changing from one resolution to another), I can choose to "Test" it, and xfine2 appears but... it ALWAYS says "1400x1050"

An screenshoot of xfine2:

I'm a bit desperate... if anybody could help me, I would be very grateful.
