PIX: Redirecting to a proxy server

We have a pix firewall that is the default route for our entire LAN.  We want to use a proxy server (Squid or similar), but don't want to touch each desktop.

On the pix, can we transparently redirect all HTTP/HTTPS traffic to a proxy server.

I'm thinking port based routing or something.  Or maybe the pix has a smarter way?

Unfortunately, PIX does not support WCCP which would be required to redirect web traffic to the proxy. If you have Active Directory you can use policies to push changes to users so that they are forced to use proxy config in IE. You would not have to change their default gateway, just restrict outbound http to the proxy IP only.
