drop the deck and take a long look at the drive belt. somewhere along its path you will see a spring loaded arm with a pulley on the end. that arm is the tensioner, if it is not keeping adequate tension on the transmission end of the belt then either you are using the wrong belt, the spring has been taken off and put back on wrong, or the spring has just lost its springiness. You are going to have to figure out which problem and remedy it. Mower parts are common and are sold at small engine repair shops which you can find in the phone book or with a google search.
one other possibility is that someone has removed the drive belt and put it on incorrectly. there are generally guides close in around the front pulley to keep the belt from jumping off, and it has happened before that someone has unknowingly put a new belt on over instead of under the guide. you have to look close to see this.
