Question Screensize of XFree86 is wrong

I have RedHat 7.0 on my Siemens-Nixdorf Scenic 500 Mobile laptop with a Chips & Technologies 15550 video card. I recently downloaded and succesfully installed XFree86 4.2.0. But when I start XFree86, XFree86 seems to think the width of my screen is about an inch more than it really is. When I maximize the window of an application, I loose the last inch at the right. I've allready tried to change the "displaywidth" and "lcdcenter" in the configuration file, which gives indeed different results, but the problem of my disappearing piece allways stays the same. Anyone can help?
