SOURCE: power steering noise
The belt is almost assuredly to tight and needs to be loosened just a hair. It is hard sometimes to get the tension just right. Try looseneing it a bit and hopefully that will help. I have had the same problem in the past.

I recommend that you go to any Auto Parts store and by a repair user manual for your 2000 Mazda Protege. They have pictures and arrows and stuff that you will need to do the whole job. The non-Mazda version will cost approximately $15.00.
Because of the tensioner that may come off when while you are doing these belt changes, it is too complicated to talk you through this.
But with the manual, I am confident you can change them.

SOURCE: sounds like a loose belt.
Most surpentine belts have an atomatic tensoner. I have had 2 fail on different cars and it is a simple fix, both of them required removal of one bolt.

Try using a very small spray of silicone spray on the belt next time you're hearing the squeal. If it temporarily stops, replace the belt. Check the p/s fluid level, if it's low it could cause the pump to make noise. Also if it's low, you have a leak, check all lines, connections and pull back the bellows boots on the p/s rack (if rack and pinion). Finally, pick yourself up a mechanic's stethescope, good tool for diagnosing accesory noises. Listen to all components while duplicating the noise.

yes it is the serpentine belt and there is only one and you need to make sure it is on properly and that it is on the idle tensioner pully andd you have to loosen the tensioner to put the belt on and tighten it to tighten the belt look for a belt schematic on the engine compartment area of your car near the front or sodes on the upper outer area where the hood comes opver the comparment
