Hi T o m  M i t c h e l l i !

I have two thoughts:

1. I use headphones for this.  When you plug them in the speakers are
muted and you still have a way to access the sound if you need to.

2. You could set up an unused run level and call it from the grub boot
stanza by selection (esc during the splash screen),

Have a lot of fun!
