I assume you have a serpentine belt.  They generally don't squeak, but the bearings on the idler pulley might.  Use a wrench to flex the idler spring and remove the belt with your other hand.  Check all rotating pulleys (alternator, etc.) for gritty feel or squeaky sound by rotating them by hand.  Replace belt by putting it on all stationary pulleys and then the idler last as you flex the spring with the wrench again.  Inspect your installation to make sure you didn't get it offset by a groove anywhere.
