AFAIK, can't be done directly in KDE. You configure the KDE login manager (KDM--K Display Manager) in the Control Center->System Administration->Login Manager. You can enable a slide show to somewhat help prevent screen burn-in.

However, some quick surfing reveals that you might be able to manually hack a screen saver option. Try starting here.

No idea, really, but I wonder if xscreensaver (as opposed to kde's screensaver) might do the trick.
