Is it related to the temp. of the engine?  i.e. does it happen only on
cold starts?
Does it accompany something else you do, i.e. steering, changing the
A/C, etc.?
Does it happen at about the same place every time, i.e. at a certain
intersection or spot on the freeway?
Have you tried turning off accessories such as the climate control when
it happens?

Maybe PS pump noises, like if you put the steering wheel to full lock
and hold it there?  Check your PS fluid reservoir.  It may have
mysteriously emptied itself, mine's done that before.
There's a TSB that was published in '93 about a PS hose; that could be
what's leaking.
