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.

okay, i just thought there was somewhere in the configuration file where you could specify to disable it because when i tried other distros, not all of them have the beeps during a reboot/shutdown session.
I am using Suse 9.2 and I also would like to stop the two beeps from the pc
speaker on shutdown / reboot.
The first advice about disconnecting the pc speaker is impossible for me, I'm
on a laptop. Besides, I am pretty sure this is OS related, cause no other OS
I have tried beeps on shutdown (Win2000, WinXP, FreeBSD).
The second advice about searching for beeps in /etc/sysconfig editor: I have
done that and it did find 2 entries, but both were allready set to 'no'.
Doesn't anyone have some idea of what is making the 2 beeps and/or how to stop
them? They are really loud and really anoying
This worked for me. In my case, I'm using SuSE 9.2 and it was the pcmcia setting that was set to "yes".
Maybe try switching the pcmcia to "yes", save, restart, and then switch it back to "no", save, and restart? It's just a guess as I'm not sure why yours is set to "no" and you're still hearing the beeps.
Just to clarify, I'd found the setting in sysconfig by searching for "beep". One of the two results was already set to "no". The pcmcia one was set to "yes".
