revert rh9/gnome back to system defaults?

Hi, I'm a brandnewbie with Linux (less than a month).

I just installed Red Hat 9 on my computer at work, and am trying to get a feel for using GNOME desktop manager.

However, in my customizing, I messed up a number of layout features that bother me. First, I somehow disabled the 'taskbar' feature of GNOME, so that when I minimized a window, the window simply disappeared from the screen instead of appearing in the taskbar. Now today I somehow accidentally deleted the default toolbar from the bottom of the screen, so now I have no toolbar and have to do everything from Nautilus.

At this point, I just want to reset the desktop to look like it did when I first installed Linux. Can anyone give me an idea of how to do this?

Thanks, and sorry for the stupid newbie question.
