Mathematica 5.0 on Mandrake and Numlock

I put my Mathematica 5.0 on a machine running Mandrake 10.1. At first I was a 
little perplexed by the fact that I couldn't do anything with the keyboard 
and all I saw was a hand tool. But then I saw a few post that all pointed to 
the fact that if the numlock is turned off the problem is fixed. I did that 
and fixed it was..
But I haven't found anything about using Mathematica 5.0 on Linux with the 
numlock on. I like to work with the numlock on because I got used to (when I 
started learning Mathematica) using the keypad to enter numbers. Is there any 
way to keep the numlock on and still have all the functionality of the 
keyboard when working with graphical notebooks?

Thank you
