Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

i think i've figured out a solution, although it is a little bit tricky and goofy. at least it worked on my linux box.
like CragStar said, go to the kcontrol->look & feel->panel->applet, select the entry: load only trusted applets internal. and start your "kicker".
if this still doesn't work, right click your taskbar (i mean taskbar, not the panel), modify the preferences, unselect some features of the taskbar (in my case, i disabled "show window list button" and "group similar tasks"). try if the panel could come back.
i think this is the bug of kde. hope not in the coming kde3.
No, I was only wondering if you had found a complete solution or working solution. There are bound to be ppl in the future with same problem - I just like to know things. Knowledge is power and all that.....
I also had this problem..it also happened for user one time, when I installe denlightenment, but I straightened that out. I went over to gnome and reset some kde stuff...I was glad I had installed both desktops.
Today, I had this problem in KDE 3.5. I had gone into Configure Panel, Hiding, and I clicked on "Raise when the pointer touches the screen's: Top Edge." I hit "apply" and the panel disappeared -- permanently.
I did stuff that did not work, like rebooting. When KDE comes up, the panel raises up for a second, then hides itself. Moving the mouse pointer to the bottom of the screen would not raise it.
kicker would not help, because the panel was running, it was just permanently hidden.
I googled this:
kde "panel disappeared"
I did not anything helpful. (I did find this tread.)
I finally discovered a solution. By right clicking on the desktop, the right click menu appeared and konsole is one option. I chose that, then typed kcontrol and hit enter. That brought up the KDE Control Center. I could then go into Desktop, Panels, Hiding and turn off "Raise when the pointer touches the screen's: Top Edge." My panel was back.
