Normally you can use "xset b percent pitch duration" (see "xset q") for
current values. However, on my T40p both the "percent" and "duration"
parameters seem to control the duration.
As a compromise maybe change the duration to make it less intrusive?
If you're bothered by the beep during, say, tab completion under bash,
you can add "set bell-style none" in /etc/inputrc
Hope that helps a little.
