Squid Authentication Active Directory

Dear Penguins,

Is it possible to have a RedHat 9 Squid box that can authenticate it's user/password combination to Active directory without asking for user input?

At the moment I've successfully got Squid popping up the login box for

Is it possible for linux to check what user is currently logged onto our AD domain on that machine and authenticate them?

Also because we occasionaly need to ban internet usage for students (I work at a school) can a file be edited to disable internet usage, just like denyusers in msntauth.

Or am I dreaming?

I thought you might want to look into a Squid LDAP module. There's also this Squid LDAP project I found on Freshmeat. Project looks a bit stale, however, but that's as much as I could find that might be up your alley without hacking your own script.
