If your running Gnome, right click on your panel, select "Add to Panel" and then choose "Workspace Switcher"

Thats for Gnome-2.8.3 tho. Should be a similar process for 2.6

Maybe it is the kde taskbar that has 'auto hide' feature, try to move your mouse
at the bottom of the screen, the taskbar should appear with the workspace switcher
(if it is not here, right click on the taskbar and add it)

Or maybe there is a shortcut like ctrl+alt+[1-4] ?

Sorry... I assumed since you came from Redhat that you were using Gnome. Yea, It's 'Desktop Pager' in KDE and I think 'Kontrol Center' pretty much has everything you need to customize. Normally I get lost looking thru that so I can understand why you might have had a hard time finding it...
