RedHat 7.3 Gnome and Screen Resolution


I am using RedHat 7.3 with GNome. Initially I had the esolution 1024x768 but I wanted to change it to 800x600 so I edited the /etc/X11/XF86Config and had the correct resolution on my monitor. But know I am having problem of desktop not showing completely. Desktop scrolls up right left or down when themouse reaches an edge. Any solution for this? I think screen resolution is changed but the desktop is of smae resolution as before.
