Belt squeals when I start my car?

Belt squeals when I start my 1998 Subaru. Stops after 5 seconds. What can be done at home to help stop this?
This is almost always the alternator belt being loose. If you adjust the belt, the sound should go away. In some cases the belt may need to be replaced depending on wear or cracks in the belt.
