Keyboard NumLock is always off at startup

I'm using Kurumin 4Alpha2 (a Brazilian flavor of Knoppix) with Kde 3.3.0

I've made the necessary changes on kde to have my keyboard numeral light on at startup.
Unfortunately, it is working only at graphical interface. It is not working at text mode.
Every time I go to text mode (Ctl+Alt+F2) I have to remember to turn the light on (guess if I ever remember??).

If anyone knows how can I fix this I would be very thankfull.
