[ltp] System bell volume

Hi all.

Is it possible to lower the volume / mute the system bell without
affecting the complete hardware volume (as it is when using the hardware
volume buttons) on a T40?

I would really like to silence the system bell a little bit (esp. under
KDE), but it seems that the soundcard has no mixer channel for it.

The workaround to choose an adequate overall hardware level so the bell
is not too loud, and use the appropriate mixer channels for the rest
does unfortunately waste some volume...
