Woo! Hoo! It turns out network-manager-gnome was already installed 
(don't know why). So I killed knetworkmanager and started the nm-applet 
(took a bit to find that command) and two clicks and password later I 
had a WPA connection. Thank you!

I will wait until the dust settles over the KDE wireless connectivity 
applet and try it again in a few months. Maybe when I upgrade to karmac.
