Anybody know how to change the sound (in OS9) the Mac makes when the system starts up? This is pretty basic, I know, but somebody help me out here. I know I can add new sounds in the "Sound" control panel, but I don't know how to replace the default Apple bell. This is pretty basic, I know, but if somebody could help me out here I'd really appreciate it..

I like the Apple Bell, too, but I'd like the ability to customize my own startup theme--I seem to remember being able to do it way back in System 7.1 on my 7100...
