locale and keyboard settings


I am new to Slackware Linux, i used SuSE for a long period of time, i have got two questions:

locale settings (like LANG, ROOT_USES_LANG, RC_ALL, RC_LC_ALL) have been set under SuSE in /etc/sysconfig/language.

I found /etc/profiles.d/ on Slackware, but i was only able to set LANG and not the other Variables like ROOT_USES_LANG etc..) where can i set these under Slackware?

The keyboard stuff (thinks like KBD_NUMLOCK - which turns NUMLOCK on or off while booting) was/is stored in /etc/sysconfig/keyboard under SuSE, where can i find the configfile to activate the NUMLOCK, KABSLOCK etc... under Slackware at bootup.

Have you had any luck with these changes? I'm looking to do the same and don't have a clue as to where to look for these things.

No, i only found /etc/profile.d/ for setting the LANG variable, but not the file which is responsible for the keyboard stuff..
