Hi Arman,

There are many ways:

 - if you use bash, add "set bell-style none" to ~/.inputrc or $INPUTRC
 - if you use tcsh, add "set nobeep" to ~/.cshrc or /etc/csh.cshrc
 - to prevent less from beeping: export LESS=-Q or setenv LESS -Q
 - to prevent  vim from beeping: add "set visuallbell" to /etc/vimrc
 - inside a console, you can run 'echo "\033[10;10]\033[11;0]"'
 - inside X11, run "xset b off" (add this to your .xsession or .xinitrc)

...but physically disabling the speaker is probably the simplest solution ;-)
