I just did this last week and I've already forgotten where I found half
of the information. In any case, I think you'll probably find what you
need on the following sites. IIRC all the configs needed to make it work
are in /etc/squid/squid.conf and /etc/squid/squidguard.conf. While
setting up a transparent proxy is a little more involved, doing it the
manual way (ie. manually forcing web browsers to use a proxy) is a one
liner in squid.conf.
