  Very simple - In kde - ssh-agent is started automatically so you
  dont need to do anything except run ssh-add. TO get a little 
  window when you login all I do is :

    cd .kde/Autostart
    ln -s /usr/bin/ssh-add .

  which will run ssh-add when you login and give you a little
  gui to enter your passphrase for the agent.

  Can be done via koqueror as well using  go->Autostart.
