[CentOS] X/Display resolution configuration

Login as normal via the linux login screen.  The display is 1280x1024. I 
use the system config to change the display to 1600x900.  All works 
until I logout. The next time I log in, the display has reverted to 
1280X1024. It's as if, when I change the display to the higher value, 
it's not being retained---only for the duration of that session.
