Actually, if you have the right software, you can take the Mac sounds and use
them as start up beeps or system beeps -- I use "Great, Pay Dirt!" as a
system beep....However, I prefer the FTP solution, and am glad that someone
is posting them instead to an ftp site.  I've picked all of those up.

So, except for the REALLY long ones, it isn't quite as stupid as it sounds....
