Grey Cat Linux on old laptop...wrong keyboard keys

I have an old 486 laptop that I have put Grey Cat Linux on. When I boot into linux any of the keys on my IBM thinkpad that have a dual function always type the dual function rather than the actual key. for instance If I type "o" it displays a "6" If I turn ON numlock then nothing appear and when I turn off numlock all the keys I pressed appear....I have win 3.11 on this machine still and I can still edit the config files from it (grey cat is in a dos diriectory pretty neat) do I change the keyboard to the one that my IBM thinkpad 360cs has?
