I would use two 555 timer ICs. Hook the first one up as a monostable multivibrator and the second as an astable multivibrator. The first one sets the length of duration and the second sets the frequency of the tone. Go to your local bookstore and get a copy of "IC Timer Cookbook" by Walter G. Jung. This is an excellent book and will describe the pinouts and methods of assembly.
