I don't know what script file starts xfce. I start it by typing kdm. Then I
have an option of starting kde or xfce.
There is no .xinitrc on my computer, but there is a .kderc in my home
directory. I tried adding a line there that had "xbattbar &", but that
I also noticed that there is an Autostart directory under the .kde directory
in my home directory. Do I need to add a script there? If so, what would
this script look like?

Xfce is just a window manager, right? Run xbattbar in whatever script
file you start xfce from (usually .xinitrc).
