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.

If this has just started recently, it is probably a problem with the system, and check the beep against the diagnostic codes for your BIOS.
If it is just a single beep, that is normal. If, for some reason, you want to turn the single beep off, disconnect the power lead to your system speaker. It (the speaker) will be inside the case, usually against the front bezel. I don't suggest doing this, because then if you ever really do have a problem you won't have your diagnostic beep codes to help you, but if you have to stop the beeping it will work.

You can change the pitch of the hardware beep, but i dont think you can change it's volume. If it's really annoying just cut one of the wires connected to the hardware speaker. (there should be two, either one is fine) and then you can strip them and reconnect them if you need, although killing the hardware bell is a very bad idea...

The direct approach would be to simply connect a variable resistor in series with the speaker. You could also simply pull the connector off the motherboard, there is no need to cut anything. Look at where the LEDs connect to your motherboard.
XavierP, perhaps pixelV was told that if nobody else has a solution, ask a Slackware user =-].
