Darn, I'd forgotten about SELinux which I'd enabled as this is acting as
a Firewall also.

Originally the permissions from what I'd created
 [root rhonda /]# ls -alZ /tmp/spool
 drwxr-x---  squid    squid    root:object_r:tmp_t  squid

Permissions of the original squid spool folder
 [root rhonda /]# ls -alZ /var/spool
 drwxr-x---  squid    squid    system_u:object_r:squid_cache_t  squid

Changing the policies
 [root rhonda spool]# chcon -R -t squid_cache_t squid/
 [root rhonda spool]# ls -alZ /tmp/spool
 drwxr-x---  squid    squid    root:object_r:squid_cache_t squid

And again, I also tried the -R option.
 [root rhonda /]# restorecon -v /tmp/spool

After trying to start again the squid cache log has:
 2005/04/24 01:51:03| /tmp/spool/squid: (13) Permission denied
 FATAL:  Failed to verify one of the swap directories, Check cache.log
        for details.  Run 'squid -z' to create swap directories
        if needed, or if running Squid for the first time.
 Squid Cache (Version 2.5.STABLE9): Terminated abnormally.

Any other suggestions?

I have it working using the originally created directory which should do
me anyway but it would be nice to know how abd where I am doing things
wrong.  Next step will be trying to decifer the SELinux information
contained in the other links.
