Description John Cagle 2000-07-24 16:55:43 EDT
The numeric keypad on a standard PC keyboard is dead during a GUI installation.
However, the NumLock key does respond, but all it does is toggle NumLock LED on and off.
The Keypad Enter key generates the SPACE character only.

Confirmed in Pinstripe.
I selected a Generic 105-key (Intl) keyboard and Swedish layout, but numkeys
don't work (just acts as mousecursor-moving keys). Toggling NumLock only toggles
the LED but has no other effect.

Makes it really annoying to enter all IP numbers in the Network Configuration
screen for one who's used to do it, and defaults to do it, on a numeric keypad.
Comment 2 Matt Wilson 2000-08-03 12:21:39 EDT
This is a feature in the installer to facilitate mouseless operation.  To turn
it off, hit <Ctrl+Alt+Shift+NumLock>
