My PC (Quinidar Siril) is a 3rd lev rogue 10th lev ranger and I had thought that setting traps would be a class skill for him...however I went to set a trap for the first time yesterday and realised that I was unable to. There is no skill for set trap in my list...and I do not remember having the option to put points into that when levelling. I do have points in disable and craft...Is this right?

Set trap is a trained skill which means you cannot use it unless you have placed points into it. I am unsure if this means it will not show up in your skill list if you do not.
I would recommend next time you level, if you do not see the skill as an option to put points into, you do not accept a level and attempt to contact a dm.
Also, class skills just mean that when you level up as that class, you are able to get a 1:1 ratio for points you place in that skill. It does not mean you are able to use trained skills untrained.

Hroth: *raises an eyebrow* No, I never do my own jerking. There is a lady in suzail that does my jerking for me. Does a good job to! Vind: *nods* I do all my own jerking. But maybe I should get someone else to do it. Hroth: Try Glewien
Set Traps is a class skill for rangers and rogues.
Disable Trap is a class skill for rogues but not rangers. Yes, that's kind of dumb, but I didn't make that game.
In NWN, there are only 2 skills that are restricted: Use Magic Device and Perform. A character must be a bard (or maybe also RDD, not sure) to take Perform and must be a bard or rogue to take Use Magic Device. All other skills can be taken as cross class skills.
In D&D 3.5e, the restrictions on skills were removed and there are no restricted skills. Some shapechangers (particularly afflicted lycanthropes) get Control Shape as a class skill, but so far as I know, the only reason nobody else has that option is because they don't have to worry about controling their shape.
