Question Can't find hardware driver settings in Kubuntu


I have been following a tutorial to get wireless working on my laptop. But the funny thing is, I can not find the hardware driver settings.

In the tutorial they say: "Under the desktop menu System > Administration > Hardware/Additional Drivers, the b43 drivers can be activated for use."

My KDE desktop looks like this:

I am very confused and uncertain how to proceed. Besides this little confusion, is there a way to get the normal KDE desktop back? With the taskbar at the lower-side of the screen?

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

What do you get if you click on "Menu" in the top-right corner? My guess would be that System is under that menu...

As for moving the panel, googling for "Kubuntu move panel" gets you this as the top result

EDIT: I see you beat me to posting... Please mark the thread as 'SOLVED'

Hope this helps,
