Lost the Mandriva KDE sound mixer... how do I regain it?

In the process of trying to fix the other problem, I accidentally killed the sound mixer. How can I get it back? btw, I 'm talking about the sound mixer present in the notification area of Mandrake's kde on a first boot, NOT the mixer app that appears as a series of volume bars in the taskbar.

Tell us HOW you fixed it, since other usersmay benefit, too.

When you do find the answer, even if it was something simple and silly (like "Oh, I found where it was on the menu"), if you could just give a short blurb on how you did it, I'm sure other users (who might be as newbie as you if not more so) would appreciate it. I know countless times I've benefitted from someone posting some simple note like that, even on old old forums from years and years ago when I desperately need that obsolete software to work with the newest bleeding edge program.

Just a note.

sorry. It's just that I've had the experience of threads I wrote sitting dormant on this site for months, so I figured I'd just close it out quickly after finding the answer since many times no one looks at it for so long.
