This Noise Description sounds Indicative of the Sounds that come from the Serpentine Belt Or Related parts such as Belt Idler Pulley or Belt Tentioner witch also has a Pulley, but if Tensioner itself is Literally BROKE I've replaced a number like this it will cause a Whining noise . Best case scenario its just the Belt, and if any of the other Problems turn out to be the Culprit the Belt MUST be Replaced Anyhow as Damage is Being caused By the Very Whining you hear.
PLEASE Spend the Extras $ for the BEST BELT as this Drives your Water pump, Alternator, A/C Compressor, Power Steering Pump All Crucial to Control of, easy Steering ,All Electrical-Power Distribution, The COOLING of Engine << VERY CRITICAL Component
The Pulleys usually have a more Hum type Whining. So I would say at Best The BELT , And WORST Belt Tentioner is Broke

I agree with Krazy.... I own a 98' D. and generally keep it tuned up every 20-30k. You might also check the air filter as well. Regular service will keep your D on the road a long time.
If you have the cash, get a K&N filter for it. It will help improve your mileage slightly, and a little added acceleration never hurts. :)
I stage 2 chipped mine, put the K&N cold air intake kit (replaced the air box for the direct air tube), put stainless headers on, replaced the exhaust with 3" stainless high flow. I also replaced the coil, cap, and wires to MSD. The truck will still like the standard Champion plugs. All of this put my little 318 at 17MPG and over 350HP (365ish).

Like you said, battery may be flat. You can check that with a multimeter.
Next check the alternator. Faulty alternator leads to uncharged battery.
