In your /etc/lilo.conf put a line like
Then in that file you need to write a control+g character somehow. You
can do this in several ways. if you use vi then ctrl+v then ctrl+g will
insert the bell character. From a shell you can also use
echo -e "\007" >/boot/boot.message
Then rerun lilo and you should get a beep next reboot.
