Two general ways:

 - Get rid of the cable between your motherboard and your soundcard which 
transports the beep.
 - Using kernel 2.6 don't load the module pcspkr...

Or use the kde-konsole named Konsole and turn the audible beeps into visible 
beeps in its configuration....

There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the 
Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be 
replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.

There is another theory which states that this has already happened.
