In K -> Computer -> System Settings -> Keyboard & Mouse there should be a setting called rate which you can increase by dragging the slider.

Edit: just installed KDE to confirm:

This is strange. I do not have the keyboard -option at the left-hand side for some reason. I have only the other four. - I use the "glassy" kde in Ubuntu 9.10. What is your distro? – Masi Jan 18 '10 at 19:17
I use various ones, I'm not sure if I installed it on my LFS build or Arch, but I think it was Arch: – John T Jan 18 '10 at 19:51
