put control G characters in the "title" lines in your menu.lst file, if 
you put 1 in the first title line, 2 in the second etc you'll get a 
volley of beeps when the menu comes up and a beep every time you move 
the selection up and down. When you boot an option you'll get the same 
number of beeps as control G's in the title.
