Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

edit /etc/termcap, find the linux onsole definition and remove the bl=^G entry or maybe replace it with bl=\E7\E[?5h\E[?5l\E[?5h\E[?5l\E[?5h\E[?5l\E[?5h\E[?5l\E8: which should make the screen flash instead. alledgely you can also add "set bell-style none" in your .bashrc, but that doesn't do anything for me

Thanks for that acid_kewpie, I'll try that. I guess the screen flashes are better having the computer beeping at ya.
Another simple solution is to blacklist the particular module that makes the system beep. You can either go into the file
and add the line: "blacklist pcspkr", or if you want to implement it live simply run the commmand "modprobe -r pcspkr" as root, and the beeps will be gone. This also disables beeps across the whole system, regardless of who's logged in, which I like because I login as many different users on my systems for different reasons.
