Number keys dont work during install

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0)
Description of problem:
Number keys in the keypad do not work during the installation process.
There is no output, as if I hadnt typed them. Num lock was on, the keyboard had
been correctly identified as UK and the keyboard normally works fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attach a UK keyboard to the server to install
2. Install 7.2 from CD (I was using Compaq DL360)
3. When prompted tell it you are using a UK keyboard.
4. Turn num lock on, then type from number keys e.g. for date,
or for partition size. Nothing happens
Actual Results: Nothing!
Expected Results: Should have been able to use the number keys to type numbers
Nothing to add, except it happens every time and it's really annoying if you
happen to instinctively type numbers in from the number pad each time.
