Question how to get gnome tasklist back?

On the Gnome panel there was a thing I believe is called the Tasklist. If you right click on the little bar to move it about, a menu come up and one of the options is remove from panel. I did this. Now I can't find any way to get it back.

On the gnome web site I found some instructions that said go to foot|Panel|add to Panel|Applet (I'm not sure I remember that last part correctly anymore), but when I tried that there was nothing that said anything about a tasklist or seemed to be anything remotely like it.

I'm using RedHat 7.2

Any help would be appreciated.

Go to the foot -> Panel -> add to Panel -> Applets -> Utilities -> Tasklist

Another question - I had done the same thing (removed the default panel that was located at the top of the screen when I installed gnome), then added back a panel and had to find and add the tasklist back. However, when I added the tasklist to the new panel, it appeared as four rectangles lined up horizontally. The original tasklist had a nice little 2x2 grid that showed the four desktops. I compared all the settings with that of a fresh install of gnome on another machine, and the tasklist properties are identical. Is there any way to get it to show up as the 2x2 grid instead of the rather largish rectangles?
