/sbin/modprobe pcspkr makes it so /sbin/lsmod | grep pcspkr produces:
pcspkr                  7313  0 
rather than nothing, but still no bell rings.  I created the 
/etc/rc.modules as you suggested and then the bell rings once as the login 
screen comes up, but after logging in to kde there is no bell.  The bell 
now works with gnome though.  If I pick 'system tools'-'Terminal Program 
Super User Mode' I get a window where the bell works.  Just doing an 'su 
root' does not help though.  I have all the volume levels up in kmix.  On 
google I see mutterings about artsd doing something wrong with the bell, 
but I don't find any fixes.
  Thanks,
    Richard
