Solution for this is to either 1) lower the volume, by lowering the 
slider on the "PC Beep" channel in your mixer (e.g., kmix, alsamixer, 
etc.), or 2) complete turn off the volume by either a) muting that 
channel in your mixer, or b) not loading the kernel "pcspkr" module 
(e.g., by setting "MODULES=(... !pcspkr ...)" in your /etc/rc.conf.
