The taskbar is called kpanel. It should reside in the same place as the
kde bin's. If you can open kfm you can click "File/Run" and type in
kpanel to launch it. If it is not coming up automatically, you may need
to type in "usekde" at the command line or remove the .kde directory in
your home dir. If both those things fail you may need to reinstall the
base KDE system.
