Wont start up :( Need help

My 99 Sahara won't start up, even after getting jumped. Had problems like the "check gages" light coming on and the battery gage red line "9" while I was driving, and now she wont start up!

Very nice. I didnt have to replace my battery when my alternator went out. Now my new alternator is making a squealing sounds, probably a bad bearing. Oh well. Grats on your new shiny parts! Haha
