Does anyone know where I can get hold of a driver for my sound card so I can hear some system sounds instead of that annoying *beep* all the time. I don't have a sound card.

There IS a "speaker.drv" for win 3.x, but since it suffers from the
problem mentioned in my above post, it isnt much use really.
