Does the sound get worst when you turn the steering wheel? Also, what exactly does it sound like, could be several things.

Have you checked your belt? Also, look to see that all the pulleys are turning when the car is running, might be a locked pulley.

I'd recommend starting a new thread, but first off, check your fluid in your power steering pump, if it's low, add some. They're notorious for going out.
