That won't help; the Linux kernel automatically turns numlock off when it starts.

For terminals, add the following to your /etc/rc.d/rc.local :

# Turn on Numlock for all consoles:
for t in 1 2 3 4 5 6
setleds -D +num < /dev/tty$t &> /dev/null

To have numlock turned on in X as well, first you need to install numlockx. Then create a file called /etc/xprofile containing the following:

# Turn on num-lock:
/usr/bin/X11/numlockx on

(or, if you already have an xprofile, add the last two lines to the botom of it)
