For a start, with the engine running (and the belt correctly tensioned!)
dribble a little water onto the belt - if the noise dies buy a new belt
and make sure the pulleys are clean ... much easier fix than the water
Mine started to scream again after a while so I resorted to a tin of
belt dressing from the local agri merchants - quick squirt once every
month or so does the trick.
