num lock on boot up


I have Zenwalk 2.6 installed on my dell inspirion laptop. When I boot up and presented with a login screen my num lock is on and causes certain keys to put numbers in. How can I make it so num lock won't be on upon boot up.

The keyboardconfig tool has been improved, now you can setup this parameter, please update the following packages : xdialog, systemtools

Worked just fine. Ran keyboardconfig and found at the left bottom a checkbox that said numlock. unchecked it and rebooted. Once I rebooted numlock was off. Thanks for the assistance.

I just installed Zenwalk 2.8 lastnight on my laptop. I like the fact that the creators now placed an option during install of whether you want the numlock on during boot or not.
