    Assuming that the inside interface of your PIX is the default gateway for your users you'd just need:

    nat (inside) 1 0 0

    Then remove any proxy settings from your web browser (if applicable) and you ought to be in business.  This does give everyone close to no-holds-barred internet access without any monitoring, content filtering, or service blocking though (which is the big advantage of a proxy server).

    I hope that helps.

    If you ONLY want those two usage to have access to the internet and no one else, you could instead just use a nat (inside) command for the IP address of those specific users.

    For instance, if you give those two users static IP addresses or give them DCHP reservations (let's say and both /24) you could do something like this:

    nat (inside) 1 0 0
    nat (inside) 2 0 0
