Is there a conf file for rdesktop?

I am using rdesktop to remote into my windows servers at work. I normally launch with the "-g" switch set to 1068x768.

I was wondering if there was a conf file for this app so that I can make this the default screen resolution.

If so, where can I find it.

I am using RH9.

There doesn't seem to be any config files that i can find
But what you can do is create a file put command inside
like rdesktop -g 1068x768.
then chmod +x the file it will make it executable then all you have to do just type the file name and it will load.
echo "rdesktop -g 1068x768" > /usr/bin/rdesk
chmod +x /usr/bin/rdesk

You can do it for any program that requires extra settings.
