i have been doing it through keyboard ports (somewhere around 60h i think). Check ralf brown. You also have to check PPI port before setting LEDs or there will be only about 50% success in setting. Sorry, i don't have the code anymore

This piece of code is from my "kelvar" example (you can get it from the Examples section of this website):
Code:
set_keyboard_LEDs:
; bl = keyboard LEDs status
        mov     ah,0ADh
        call    write_8042
        mov     ah,0EDh
        call    write_keyboard
        mov     ah,bl
        and     ah,111b
        call    write_keyboard
        mov     ah,0AEh
        call    write_8042
        ret
      write_8042:
        in      al,64h
        test    al,10b
        jnz     write_8042
        mov     al,ah
        out     64h,al
        ret
      write_keyboard:
        mov     al,ah
        out     60h,al
        in      al,60h
        cmp     al,0FAh
        jne     write_keyboard
        ret    

Check Ralf Brown's Port list for the details on command codes it uses.
