I might not have enough information but the squeal is most likely a worn bearing. Try to isolate it with a "mechanic's stethescope" to locate the source. A pin point shot of WD-40 at the whining bearing (NO NOT put it on good bearings should TEMPORARILY quiet it IF it is a bearing. DO NOT overspray, just at the center of the pulleys...the lubricant should get pulled into bearing to confirm that the pump (power steering would be my guess) needs replacing.

Look at the pulley coming off the crank shaft. If the thrust bearing is going bad or is bad you will have excessive play in the crankshaft that causes excessive deflection of the belt. If it's this your looking at an engine rebuild. Just went through this on my dads jeep.

There is a spay can available at auto parts store under the name "belt dressing". Try to spray it on the belt and see what happens. It may be caused by misalignment of the belt and/or excessive slip, which would be calling to check belt tension. It could be a problem with alternator as well. Good luck finding the culprit.
