I suspect once you've restarted KDE or at least the kicker panel, it
will appear. Normally once you get the modem configured with yast it
automatically starts one of the dialing programs and adds an icon
there, but not always according to the build of KDE you're using. Try
restarting the kicker panel or just restart KDE, if you haven't since
setting the modem up. It's been quite a long time since I used a
modem, so don't recall all the details.
