1 long beep == POST has passed all tests, means that everything is alright. if you don't want any beeps just disconnect the beeper ;)

no he should not disconnect the beeper because if it ever happens that the PC wont boot, the motherboard will generate beeps, he should know about them

he could also reconnect the beeper to hear possible beepcodes if the board doesn't work anymore (for whatever reason).
