The easiest way is t edit the squid "RunCache" script and put "runsocks" in the line that runs the squid program. Make sure you are using the latest release of socks, previous versions weren't compatible with squid. You need socks5-v1.0r5.

Here is part of RunCache:

echo "Running: runsocks squid -sY $conf >> $logdir/squid.out
2>&1"
start=`date '+%d%H%M%S'`
runsocks squid -sY $conf >> $logdir/squid.out 2>&1

You might need to put the socks username and
password into the script also, if you have configured
your socks to use authentication. For example:

 SOCKS5_USER=squid
 SOCKS5_PASSWD=ocean
 export SOCKS5_USER
 export SOCKS5_PASSWD


I am assuming that you have socks working on the unix system
where squid will be running.

Greetings
