I use IPcop and DansGuardian.  It works very well for us. I use it in 3 
schools, there are a few others in our division that also use it. I 
tried it with SquidGuard, but prefer the Cop+ (DansGuardian) better.  It 
uses a bit more horsepower, but does a better job.  I run it on a 
PIII600/256MB RAM and serve a school of 350 students with about 1Gb of 
data/day.  With 128Mb it would run for a few weeks and then start using 
lots of swap.  With 256 it just runs and runs.

I had also tried SME server with squid/squidGuard but never got that to 
work properly.
We also tried OpenBsd with privoxy and that would crash under heavy 
load.  squid/DansGuardian works much better.
