comment Disabling built-in speaker in Linux
It is what I ended up doing. My SysAdmin told me to do it too! :) I think he just didn't want to deal with me.

comment Override RPM install path
Thanks! I have and will continue to complain to the admins. They think 10G for the root partition is plenty...never mind how often I have to clean up all of the corporate logging crap in /var....

comment Disabling built-in speaker in Linux
I was able to run 'modprobe -r pcspkr', but when I played the test sound in Gnome's "Sound Preferences", I could still hear the sound. When I tried 'modprobe -r snd_pcsp', I got a "FATA: Module snd_pcsp not found" message.
