Well, both belts should be _on_ the engine and turning various pulleys...
Lemme get this straight: You do know which component is the alternator, I assume. Is that the belt that you were able to pull off bare-handed? I'm thinking that if so, and the belt wasn't broken in two (frayed, maybe, but not actually broken clean through), then maybe the tensioner broke...? You should not have been able to pull off the belt (_either_ belt) without a wrench and a bit of muscle to back off the spring-loaded tensioner pulley.
