I had the same problem with my R40, where Num_Lock is at Shift-ScrLock.
I found out the keycode, and then
xmodmap -e "keycode 77 = Num_Lock"
helps. The number may vary in your case, use xev to find the keycode.
Write this line into your .xsession or into the command-field of the
gkb-applet, as I did.

hope this helps
