Question Disable system beep in emacs?


Well the title says it all: I want to diable the system beep in emacs. It pretty annoys me that whenever I reach the end of the buffer this bell beeps... it is also not good if you're in a lecture and try editing the file, I just avoided being thrown out of the lecture by shutting down the notebook...

Anybody has an idea on how to achieve this?
