How can I get rid of that **** "GlideSlope, Glideslope" Warning and still keep my other GPWS Sounds. Thanks

Why would you want to do that?

why would you? That is a pretty important aural warning when you are flying a heavy jet. Actually, the entire point of aural warnings is to increase safety in operations. They work very well in this capacity.
They have a GPWS in the King Air I sometimes fly and it does the same thing, well, er,uh, it never does it when I am flying, but I have been told that it does when other, less skilled people are flying...

Basically the only way to get rid of "glideslpope, glideslope" and keep the other warnings is to not fall below the G/S on final. Otherwise, you can turn them all off using the INOP button on the center pedestal.

Well if the AP would fly the GS all the way down I wouldn't be hearing the warning. I disconect the AP at 200ft and it's yelling alot sooner than that

That file is located in FS2002\Sound\Dreamfleet 737
Find it, Delete it, one less GPWS sound, although I'd recomend you leave it in as there's a posibilty it may cause some problems somewhere else, although, with your avarage add-on delting a sound will merely make it stop sounding, but we all know the DF734 is no avarage addon ;-)
Another tip: If the AP is ballsing up your approach, hand fly it! It's much more satisfying to take control of the aircraft once below transition altitude (usually 18000ft) and manually fly the aircraft into the airport.

Yes, I'd recommend hand-flying the approach as this is more realistic anyway. Plus, you'll only have yourself to blame when you fall below the G/S and hear the audible warning:)
I'd not suggest deleting the file, but rather rerecord the file as silent, keeping the duration the same. This would prevent any oddities from happening resulting from just deleting the file.
