I am looking for a way to configure the keyboard setup in Linux.  I think this maybe handled in one package.  What I want to do is turn on Numlock status and to speed up the keyboard repeat rate and reduce the repeat delay.  Where can I find such a package?

Both of these functions are handled by the BIOS. Have a look in your motherboard manual, or press DEL (usually) at boot time to enter the BIOS.

Yes, I've already covered the BIOS options, except Linux overrides them.  What I want is a program or BASH commands that sets/resets the state of the keyboard locks (num,caps,scroll) the way that I want and to speed up the keyboard.  Sorry.

Hy,
to turn Numlock on : setleds +num
to speed the keyboard : kbdrate -r 30 -d 250
"r" is for speed repetition
"d" is for delay befor repetition

Oh, btw, this is included in most distribution like redhat slacware.
Anyway you can find it in kbd-0.93.tar.gz at sunsite.

It worked!  Thank you.  I'm sorry about the tardiness, I had to setup other computer things before I could test it.
