Noise at startup

I get a loud screaching noise when I start my car. It happens when the car is cold (first thing in the morning, or sat and cooled off).
It sound just about like screaching nails on a chaulkboard. Only happens for the first second or two. Anyone have any ideas what it is...or if it's killing my car?
Ohh it's a 2.3 SEL

I agree, almost sounds like a/c clutch or even belts slipping..
