Squealing 90

Does anyone own a Trek Fuel with disk brakes? Mine has the disks and I cannot get the rear to stop squealing. Some have told me that it's because of the design of the rear disk mount. Can anyone give me suggestions on how to shut this thing up? Thanks!

What type of disk brakes does your fuel have? I have a specialized stumpjumper with avid disks, and depending on what are at this point undetermined factors (heat? humidity? moisture? my fatness?) it squeaks like the devil, but mostly at LOW speeds - creep stop and slow starts...
