Annoying System Beep

The system beep in Linux and *BSD is driving me nuts. Under VMWare it is really LOUD which is not nice in an office environment (or any other for that fact)

Here are a few ways to turn this thing off that have worked for me.

Linux:
Black list the module
edit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist and add the line
blacklist pcspkr
FreeBSD (maybe others too):
X Windows
xset b off
csh/tcsh
set nobeep
Globally
put hw.syscons.bell=0 in the /etc/sysctl.conf file
