In my case, when I chkconfig-ed NetworkManager on, and re-booted,

The whole WiFi setup is a bit of a mess, in my experience.

Turn on NetworkManager and NetworkManagerDispatcher services.

That is precisely what I did, and it did not work.

I'm sorry, but NetworkManager at the moment is simply not up to the job
that has been given to it in FC5.
Hopefully it will be in the future.

Oh, you're using KDE. The applet is in the package NetworkManager-gnome, so obviously this doesn't work for KDE; I'd look into what Jon referred you to.
[grinnz bookdt43p ~]$ rpm -ql NetworkManager-gnome
/etc/dbus-1/system.d/nm-applet.conf
/usr/bin/nm-applet
/usr/bin/nm-vpn-properties
...
