I'm not sure why I haven't seen anyone mention this mini-Howto thats
available at

It goes into great detail about how to disable the beeps or change them
into visual beeps for both the console and X11. I haven't tried Ingo's
module but if it works it seems to be a very clean way to do it and
perhaps something that could be added to the above mini-Howto.
