Open applications no longer on task/toolbar

New guy here again. I buggered something up on my Fedora Core 2 where my open applications no longer appear on the bottom toolbar/ taskbar. If I minimize an application, it dissapears and I can't bring it back. I checked all the options for displays, toolbars, windows, etc but I can't find anything that will display them again.

Does anyone know what I did wrong??

Thanks again!

Thanks for the response- I have NO IDEA what kde is!

But, I did figure it out. I went down and right clicked on the toolbar and played around with "add to panel." Seems to be back and OK now.

thanks again.
