in prefs > control center, there is keyboard & keyboard shortcuts

keyboard shortcuts is just for all the extra keys & stuff

keyboard has tabs at the top saying "keyboard" "typing break" "layouts" & "layout options"
& i can't find anything about numlock in any of those....

If you are using Gnome you may need to compile a small C program, called setnumlock, that can turn numlock on for you. Download this ftp://ftp.silug.org/pub/ltsp/setnumlock.tar.gz and untar it then cd into it, compile and install it, change the permissions so ordinary users can use it and then get gnome to run it every time you log in
Code:
tar xzf setnumlock.tar.gz
cd setnumlock
make
su
password
make install
chmod 755 /usr/bin/setnumlock
exit
gnome-session-properties
Click the Startup Programs tab then click Add+, enter setnumlock into the box and click OK
