squid authentication

Hello friends.

I have replaced my companies WinNT File and internet server with RH 7.3 using samba and squid. Thanks to the guys who made them
Now my problem:
How can i authenticate users in windows (clients) of my samba domain against squid so that they dont have to give username and password every time or anytime they make a connection. just like we use to have in microsoft proxy server.

I am able to get users authentication using samba but the users have to give the passwords every time they goto internet and moreover any messengers like yahoo messenger or msn cant be used

If squid authentication is not needed, turn it off in the squid.conf file.
