serpentine belt?

Here's an easy one for ya: I was reading a Haynes manual and in the specs section it mentioned something about serpentine vs. conventional belts. I think it said "conventional" anyway. It was something like that. What's the difference?

Newer cars generally have one belt driving a number of things including the alt, power steering, air pumps etc. They wind around like a serpent, hence the name.
