1) Open your menu and right-click on 'konqbrowser'
2) Select 'Add to desktop' or 'Add to panel'
3) Right-click on your new icon that appears on the desktop or 
4) Select 'Icon settings'
5) Switch to the 'Application' tab
6) In the 'Command' field, change the word 'webbrowser' to 
7) Click on the 'Advanced options' button (just above the 
'Cancel' button at bottom right)
8) Tick the 'Run as different user' checkbox
9) Enter 'root' in the user field

You can use a similar technique to create an icon for in your 
menus by right-clicking on the menu button and selecting the 
menu-editor function

Warning - if you haven't fully updated your system, this icon 
would fail to intiate after a single use in any given session, I 
believe, because some lock file wasn't being deleted on shutdown. 
The cure is to make sure you're updated to the most current 
version of KDE that's in updates-testing or kde-redhat
