My 1998 audi a6 makes a noise

I believe it is the lower front wishbone that is too dry in the joint. Ask someone to put a hand at the wishbone while turning the steering wheel back and forth. The person will immediately feel wether it is this or not, by small vibrations and nois from it.

Noise while turning when accelerating

Probably a, or both front CV (constantly variable) joints in the front half-shafts (the driveshafts that run from your transmission to both your front wheels) are going bad. Not a too uncommon problem. They run about 150-160$ Canadian dollars a piece for remanufactured front shafts (from NAPA Auto Parts). Not too sure about labour cost, could be a few hundred dollars.
