I currently have squid running on Ubuntu 6.06 with 2 nics in bridge mode. I'm using iptables to redirect port 80 to Squid. This works great, but it currently logs IP addresses and I would like it log usernames instead. I don't necessarily want authentication, I just want this for logging. Can it be done?

There's no such thing like user when no authentication (against squid) is performed.
You could try using ident for remote user identification, but novadays, nobody runs the server anyway.

Right, it can be done but not without authentication.

I don't care if there's authentication or not, I just don't want to have to configure each PC with proxy information.

put the squid box outside of the default gateway and make sure all the web traffic is forced through it.
Group policy also lets you set a proxy if you are in an AD environment, and that way you don't have to go to each machine at least.

That wouldn't give me any more information in my logs than I have now. Plus I have 2 gateways.
