been a long time since ive seen kde but if i remember, on the left side of you taskbar there should be a picture of a computer monitor, the tooltip for it should say konsole, click that to open a shell.

you really need someone who uses kde, do you have a 'run' command in your menu, if you do click on it then type konsole into the box and run it. you could always do Ctrl-Alt-F1 and log in, but i assume you want a shell in the gui.
