Is there a way to set the default resolution to be 1024x768 when I use rdesktop?

I like to use rdesktop at resolution 1024x768. But without adding the parameter "-g 1024x768", it always connects me via 800x600. Is there a way to change the default value to be 1024x768 so I don't have to keep telling the system?

So far, the only solution I've found is to create a launcher on a desktop to call the rdesktop with the desired parameter. Not exactly what I was looking for, but I think this will do for now. If you guys have better solution, I would love to hear from you.
