On 1997 Corolla a/c has its own belt. Alternator and p/s each have their own belt too. You can run without the a/c belt, no problem. Obviously, you won't have cold air.

Take a close look to see if any other pulleys are on that belt. If it's just the A/C compressor, crank pulley, and maybe a tentioner, you can run without it.
Power sterring, the alternator, and water pump must be on a different belt!

My belt located at the alternator squeeks when i start it for about 30 sec. What can i do to fix it?

The most likely reason for the squeak is that the alternator belt is slipping on the pulley while the alternator is drawing a heavier load trying to replace the charge in the battery used during starting. Tension the belt and that should remove that problem, you might get a bit more squeak for a while because the pulleys are now polished but that should bo away. The belt is correctly tensioned when you can turn the belt through 90 deg. at its longest run, without exerting too much force.

Belt diagram 1997 toyota corolla? alternator belt replacement?

The 97 Corolla has three accessory belts. The alternator belt is the one you see when you look down on the passenger side standing near the front of the engine compartment. If fits over the alternator and the engine pulley. The belt beneath it is the a/c belt (if the car has a/c). It fits over the engine pulley and the a/c compressor. The power steering belt is toward the rear of the engine compartment, on the same side. It fits around the engine pulley and the power steering pump.

Replacing the alternator belt is not too difficult. Standing in front of the car and facing towards the rear, loosen the locking bolt under the right side of the alternator. Then loosen the alternator hinge bolt on top of the alternator. Now you are ready to loosen the alternator belt tensioner adjustment bolt, accessed under the alternator from the front. Turn the tensioner until the old belt is loose enough to remove, then turn it further so that the new belt will go on easily. Replace the belt and re-tension until you have about 1/4 in. to 1/8 in. of play in the belt, tighten the lock bolt and the hinge bolt, and run the engine. If the belt squeals it means you need more tension, but do not overtension. Recheck it after a few days.

I have a 1992 corolla and it will start sometimes.

I'd suggest you should turn on the ignition, and listen carefully to hear if the fuel pump (located in the fuel tank) runs for a couple of seconds. Providing you hear it run, it should start. If it doesn't run, perhaps it is faulty, or its relay may be faulty.
I'm not sure offhand where the relay is located. You may hear it click in and out when you turn the ignition on and off.
The pump should run briefly to ensure the fuel pressure is up.
