My system tray of icons in the top-right panel is gone now..

I'm using Fedora Core 4 with GNOME.

I right-clicked the annoying red ! icon of up2date and chose "Remove panel" and now the system tray for icons is gone, so when applications like gaim are open, they don't have an icon on the screen, just their regular window. This also makes it so I have no icons to re-open a minimized application that I minimized to tray with AllTray.

How do I get this panel back?

I had to right-click on my top panel (left of the clock) and click Add to Panel and choose "Notification Area." Hopefully this helps someone!

The system tray and the open window buttons are two different things. Right click on an empty area in the panel, select Add to Panel. You'll find what you need in there.
