The setting should be in your BIOS.

Lightbulb Didn't try it though...

To enable NumLock on by default, add these lines to
/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit:



for tty in /dev/tty[1-9]*; do
setleds -D +num < $tty
done

you just nicked that out of the numlock script ehh?

you should have a script in /etc/init.d/numlock which can be set to run on start as a full service. well, aactually i've only got it on my MD system, not on my RH, the full cript should be totally generic tho
