We took the serpentine belt off our 03 ford taurus and there is no diagram to put it back on

There should be a diagram under the hood.
Look at the pully's, those with grooves get that side of the belt and those without get the other side, work your way around the outside, doing the water pump last

My serpintine fan belt came off as I started the motor; w/o air conditioner, but it does have power steering- the new belt seems to be too long, even though I had brought in the old one and followed the...

All it takes is for one part of the belt to be in the wrong position for it to appear to be too long. Check the diagram again. There is often a diagram in the owner manual as well as under the hood.

There is a tension pully located under the alternator. It has a bolt head in the middle of it. Place a long box end wrench on it and pull it towards you. The tensioner will move forward. first put the belt on the pullies properly. (see diagram placed at left side of the hood release). Then leave the belt off the pully that is located just under the motor mount. Pull back on the wrench that is placed on the tensioner as you at the same time place the belt onto the pully under the motor mount. Done. Remember that the tentioner may need to be replaced also. It might be a good idea to do that since that is the usual reason the belts jump off. Just a couple bolts with that and done. It is not expensive.
