You haven't told us which distro you are using, and whether it is KDE 3 or KDE 
4, but here goes.

KDE 3 - open the KDE Control Centre (kcontrol) and type kwalletmanager in the 
search box.

KDE 4 - System Settings > Advanced > KDE Wallet

However, I've used the wallet for years, and don't see how it is possible to 
be asked for a non-existent password.  Have you tried Enter for the password?  
That's the nearest guess I can make.

Probably your best bet is to delete the old wallet start a new one and 
deliberately set your password.  It's my guess that you simply made a mistake 
under the pressure of learning something new, and that you won't see the 
problem again.

Hope that helps
