, while following this tutorial, just select installation method , cd rom

and package selection , chose server,

squid should be install automaticaly , or after finishing the installation, you can install squid by yum any time

ok

cd /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts

vi ifcfg-eth0

then edit as follows

BOOTPROTO=static
IPADDR=192.168.2.116
NETMASK=255.255.255.0

for domain and gateway
cd /etc/sysconfig
vi network
HOSTNAME="workshop.testlab.com"
GATEWAY=192.168.2.1

for dns :

cd /etc/resolv.conf

nameserver 192.168.2.1
