I can confirm the workaround from mejogid. I had notice the noise from the pc speaker as well, but since I could not find the pcspkr module I was not able to disable it. Turns out this was the snd_pcsp module. No wonder I could not find it. I am logging in fine now on Intrepid Alpha 2 on Vmware Workstation 5.0.0. There must be a problem with the snd_pcsp in relation to vmware.
