What you need to do (for hand editing) is -- according to the patch,
around 204 (in v1.14 2005/02/08 20:43:04) where 'main.10:' appears
-- remove "movb $ASCII_BEL,%al" after "main:10:", delete the line
"callw putchr", join the line "xorb %ah,%ah" with "main.10:".
Then compile & install the new version.

I hand edited the file (/usr/src/sys/boot/i386/boot0/boot0.S) based
on the given patch; did building|installing of world & kernel; on
reboot of Dell Inspiron 5000e laptop, there still was a beep.  So
the patch did not work for me.  Did i miss something?
