My own patch to disable this is at: http://people.freebsd.org/~keramida/diff/boot0_beep.diff It should have a checksum of: % md5 boot0_beep.diff ; sha1 boot0_beep.diff MD5 (boot0_beep.diff) = edc1cdbdf6552c8f243ef7ec4fd9787a SHA1 (boot0_beep.diff) = 1da96efff024282f5911871fe9f19ebd82628e24 You can fetch it with: # cd /tmp # fetch http://people.freebsd.org/~keramida/diff/boot0_beep.diff Patching your source tree, since this patch has been generated from the toplevel src/ tree should be as easy as: # cd /usr/src # patch -p0 < /tmp/boot0_beep.diff Then rebuild your boot0 block, and install the new boot0 file in /boot: # cd /usr/src/sys/boot/i386/boot0 # make cleandir ; make cleandir # make obj # make all && make install and update the MBR of your boot disk with boot0cfg, i.e.: # boot0cfg -vB /dev/ad0 This should take care of it all.
