I use the shell a lot. When its not happy, say a file name is not unique, it makes my computer do a loud BEEP. Its a 8 bit, obnoxious and loud beep.

How can I change it to some system sound?

Thanks
Pat

Don't know how to change the sound it makes, but here's how to turn it off

System>Preferences>Sound

Click the "System beep" tab and uncheck the box that says "Enable System Beep"
