To move things on the panel, click the cashew at the extreme right of it.  
That opens up the panel configuration panel.  Now when you hover over anything 
on the panel you get a diamond-shaped icon.  Use that icon to drag lancelot to 
where you want it, then use the re-circled-X to close the configuration panel.

There are some useful short screencasts at 
- each one lasts only a few seconds, but loops, so that you have time to 
digest exactly what's happening.  For anyone using KDE 4.3.x and still not 
feeling confident I really recommend bookmarking that page. :-)
