How to switch keyboard layout in KDE/RedHat 7.2

I just moved from old KDE 1.2 which was in Mandrake 8.0, there were small programm. that place it self into system tray and enable me to switch keyboard layouts between, by pressing few key, but now I install RedHat 7.2 with KDE 2? and I could not find this menuitem

open the "KDE Control Center":

>> Personalization

>> Country & Language

Choose there your favourite options, they will also affect the way time is displayed and many other things...
