That's not possible: pressing the left shift key bypasses the syslinux

That's not simple: for now syslinux just emits ^G, which the bios
interprets as "do a beep".  Another frequency would require driving the
speaker ourself from syslinux.  How could it be confused with the normal
speaker beeps anyway?  Some machines do beep already at boot, but then
you'll just get a second one, I don't see how that can be confusing.
