[DML] alternator noise

this morning I finished installing and plugging in my alternator. 
starting the car all went as planed except for the strange noise of 
what would best be described as a whistling and squeling noise. now if 
I rub the engine for a few seconds the squeling noise will go away 
leaving me with just the whistling sound. on top of that I was smelling 
burning rubber when I investigated the rear of the car, This leads me 
to believe that obviously the alternator belt is one of the three 

1) mis-aligned (I did use 3 washers to help with the lower attachment 
to the new alternator with the rail-guide)
2) the belt is too tight
3) the belt is too loose.

Anyone whos delt with this or have any reccomendations I would be most 
Thanks DML!
