I don't think such options exist as the internal speaker sound generator is very low level hardware that operates even before the BIOS is fired up. If the manufacturer has decided to leave it out then you're out of luck.

If you need to diagnose POST problems, you can still get one of those external diagnostics cards you attach to one of the PCI slots.

The manual that came with the MB should have a section explaining the place for that tiny speaker. In my Asus manual the chapter is named "Internal connectors" and subsection "System panel connector". In there should be an illustration of the pins labelled "Speaker" showing you the correct location to attach the speaker. Also there probably are very small letters on the MB itself saying "SPKR" or "Speaker".

Hmm... looking at the manual behind your link, it looks like that motherboard doesn't have a connector for the internal speaker. Funny they should ship that tiny speaker anyway. Are you sure the MB you received is exactly the model described in that on-line manual?

This review, or user comments, suggests the MB simply doesn't have the connector even when the speaker is shipped with it:
