Some enterprising soul should come up with the mods which will do this
automatically. Try as I might, I absolutely could not hear the
internal speaker beep on either of the two systems I tried this on.
Turns out, the speaker itself is buried deep, and I mean really deep,
in the case, covered up by lots of other components. Therefore, having
grml come up talking would be, to say the least, most efficacious.
