Using the Emacs editor I can set it to enable OpenVMS EDT editor keypad mode with this command:

M-x edt-emulation-on

How can I set it so that whenever I invoke Emacs, EDT emulation is the default on a Linux system?

From the emacs edt documentation:

(add-hook 'term-setup-hook 'edt-emulation-on)

For term-setup-hook have a look at the emacs documentation about terminal initialization.

The "emacs edt" document is missing the first quote mark. – C.W.Holeman II Jun 5 '12 at 4:42
