How do you turn off the boot beep?

Greeting Linux Wizards,

How would one turn off the boot and shutdown beeps in Redhat 7.x?

There is the beep at boot when sshd loads. There is a beep when you
first reboot or halt and there is one when pcmcia deamon stops.

I ride in a van pool and the noise is anoying. (I know I could put a
plug in the headphone jack, but there should be a software solution.)

I did a web search and could not find it documented, although I expect
it's out there.

Thanks you!
