Hi All,

Recently I have isntalled a commercial hardware firewall solution which saw me discard the Smoothwall I was using which had a built in feature for web caching sites the users visited, I would now like to put a web proxy back on the network and have done some research and found that it is either ISA or some thrid party ($$$$) solution, So i am heading to squid.

All i want to achieve is the very basics of a linux installation and squid.

Any and all suggestions are welcomed, What i would like to get my hands on is an ISO that you burn to CD and use on a 486 that does the job (yay) but I am willing to install linux from scratch if needed.

Summary:

Web caching service needed for my Internal Network.

Thanks

A proxy server used for caching should use more than a 486, as this is quite an intensive job. There is also not much point of booting from a CD, you still need a fast disk system which caches the visited sites, so you might as will install Linux and Squid on the disk. Most distro's include squid, so basically you just get any distro (I suggest fedora-core 5, SuSE or Ubuntu), install it to your PC and select squid during the installation.
