Disable Console/Tab Completion Beep in Slackware

How can you disable the console/tab completion beep in Slackware? I was able to go into the /etc/inputrc and change the "set bell-style none" to disable the "ding" noise that is generated from hitting backspace one too many times. I would just like to recompile the kernel from having the pcspkr from being built in, to being a module so I can remove it and add it back at will. Where is the pcspkr in "menuconfig" when your trying to recompile it.

I think it's Device Drivers->Input device support->Miscellaneous devices->PC Speaker support.

A good way to find stuff like this out is cd into the source directory and do something like:
find . -name "pcspkr*"
