The most common is the alternator belt adjustment too loose for the load it has just after start up, I had this same problem on my Acura, I had just replaced the belts and every time I started it squealed, after several adjustments I replaced it with a premium belt and the problem went away, so if yours continues to squeal even after you readjust it then get a premium belt.

thanks I`ll try that..
