This bug is not a duplicate of 213794.
In Fedora 8 disabling system beep from the GUI does indeed disable the sound.
Furthermore, note that enabling visual system beep also doesn't work which has
nothing to do with the PC speaker.
hmm, works fine here in post-F9 rawhide.
Just checked and it seems to work now.
