Yes, that was one of the options but I will probably
just use an IPCOP/SquidGuard combination if I can work
out how to block google's safe search off option.

One of my questions was how to force a browser to use
the proxy if I did not do transparent proxy in a way
that would prevent users from removing the proxy or
needing to configure each user individually.  This
would only be required if the squidGuard was on the
K12LTSP machine...
