echo -ne '\033[11;0]' sets bell duration to 0 milliseconds on a text
console. You need to reissue that command after any console reset and
for each text console you have active. xterm has -vb, other X
applications may have to be done separately. The man page for
console-ioctl lists a couple of ioctls for beep, never tried them.
