turning off emacs beep

(setq bell-volume 0)
(setq sound-alist nil)
Tried that in my ~/.emacs, but it still beeps in tty, anyone know why? I've got the annoying .bashrc bell-style set to visible, but still can't get emacs to shut up... this bell-beeping is driving me crazy, please, for the sake of everyone around me, or at least for the sake of my soundcard which stupidly is assigned to handling beeps, help me...

Thanks! It worked, sweet. I wonder though if there's some kernel thingy to silence all bells, but ..later.. the sun is shining and I'm feeling lazy.
