In a terminal, type:

kdesu kcontrol

And give your password. The kdesu approach works for other applications as 
well.

BTW, it's quite easy to set up home networks in KDE. I have a dual boot with 
Windows XP. In Windows XP I had already set up a network with another WXP PC 
in my house. When I installed Kubuntu it detected automatically that I 
already had set up a Windows network, and I could browse shared dirs on the 
other PC immediatly. Adding a printer connected to that other Windows XP PC 
for use in Kubuntu also was quite easy in Kubuntu, I didn't need to edit any 
scary configuration files :) . Ok, maybe this rant isn't very useful for you, 
but I just wanted to say that I'm happy with KDE because of this convenience.
