Changes in resolution only affect root

I've been trying to set the resolution in fluxbox on slackware 9.1 but when I make changes to the /etc/X11/XF86Config file the changes only affect the desktop when I log in as root. When I log in as a normal user the only things the resolution affects are things insided windows such as the text size in rxvt and the text and picture size in mozilla. anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
