Beeps from machine speaker during boot?

I put this old AMD 233MHZ machine together to give away, and have it
running fairly well.

Thing is, during boot at 'verifying DMI pool data' it starts beeping
continually until W98 desktop comes up.  Then it stops beeping until
the  next boot.

Sometimes it does the same thing during shutdown.

Any ideas?

1st thing I would do replace the 2032 CMOS battery.
If it's been stood a while the battery may have lost it's ability to
store a charge from the mother board re-charge circuit.
HTH :)
