If you're using Mac OS 9 or earlier, check whether there's a flag at the right end of your menu bar; if so, click it and select the correct keyboard layout from the menu that appears. If not, open the Keyboard control panel and turn on the correct keyboard layout.
In Mac OS X, you can change the active and current keyboard layouts from the Input Menu section of the International pane of System Preferences; as with Mac OS 9, you can change the active keyboard layout from the menu with the flag icon if it appears.
This might help explain.
I have a Macally iKey keyboard with a Num-Lock key that is also labeled Clear. When plugged into the Mac, all it is another delete key, but if you plug it into a Windows PC, then the light will toggle and it will switch form navigation (windows default) to num-pad (Mac default)
