How do I set PlotRegion value permantly?

Hello All:

My apologies if this is a newbie question, but I cannot seem to find
anything that helps me out. First off, yes, it is Friday night and I'm
playing around with Options in Mathematica. Ouch. Okay, but I can deal
with that. What I am struggling with, however, is this simple
question: How do I set a default for PlotRegion->{{0.1,0.9},
{0.1,0.9}}?

For all of my 2D plots/*listplots. I just want to add a small margin
as i like to keep Frame->True.

Now, here is what I have tried to no avail.

(1) Edit with the Option Inspector. Seems like I can click on the
value to edit it, but as soon as I click away, it returns to the
default.

(2) Editing $UserBaseDirectory/FrontEnd/init.m

I've tried adding either

SetOption[Graphics,PlotRegion->{{0.1,0.9},{0.1,0.9}}]

or

Graphics[PlotRegion->{{0.15,0.85},{0.15,0.85}}]

Both of which were bad ideas, or so I gathered from the error message
windows. Yikes!

(3) Editing $UserBaseDirectory/Kernel/init.m with the same values
above, no error windows now, but also no effect it seems.

For what it's worth I have Mathematica 6.0 on Kubuntu 8.04 (Linux)....

Any ideas?

Cheers,

t.
