Well, the description is for Ubuntu but Kubuntu shares the same 
repository and wicd works more or less the same for both Ubuntu and 
Kubuntu. I just can't tell you a GUI way to add the repo because I don't 
have a 8.04 machine left. You can add the line

deb http://apt.wicd.net hardy extras

to your sources.list file. You need root privilege to edit that file and 
you could do it with the command

kdesudo kate /etc/apt/sources.list

from a terminal or from Alt-F2. Then add the key as described on the 
page you mentioned. After that you can install wicd from your favourite 
package manager.
