Hi all

We are using some old SUN Monitors which won't display anything until 
the OS is up and running, supplying the correct sync.
To let users know, when to select from the (unvisible, but known) menu, 
i would like to output a beep when pxelinux is waiting for input.

Googling shows that this question has been raised several times and the 
proposed solution was to insert a CTRL/G in the DISPLAY file. But this 
does not seem to work, i only see a circular dot, no beep sounds.
I am using PXElinux 3.08. Am i missing smoething?

Thanks for any help,
