On the numlock issue - sorry, no. The 'default numlock on' setup is correct for all my systems so I've never had occasion to look at it. You could post to the Mandriva forums, or to one of our user support mailing lists, perhaps.

On repositories - current status is that adding repositories through rpmdrake should work, but you will most likely get NOKEY warnings for every package you try to install. This was corrected on our master mirror around two hours ago. One mirror that I tested has the fix sync'ed already (pubkey files were missing from the media_info directories), but all the others don't yet. Once the mirrors are all sync'ed up, things should work without problems, but you will have to re-add the repositories if you added them before the fix was sync'ed. I'm posting this information everywhere I can, sorry for the inconvenience.
