Slack doesn't put it in the KDE menus by default, but you can still add it. Or if you want, just click the 'K' start button and then run program, type xmms and you're golden.

An easier way is to add it to your desktop by right clicking and Add-New->Shortcut to application. And then you can drag the icon to the panel if you'd like or keep it on the desktop. KDE3 has this option to automatically add programs to the menu, its very nice.
