Prolly wrong allocated RAM or a serious hardware conflict or damage.
Computers are build to make a POST (Power On Self Test) and hence the different sorts of beeps.

How old is your mandrake distro compared to your computer and vice versa ?

Weeell, you should have posted that from get go.

That crap aside, did you even stop to consider the link? It gives an extensive "beep code" list.
Identify your beep, identify your problem.

Rocket science, it ain't :)
