I'm not 100% what you mean.

Do you mean how to configure a web browser to use proxy, or how to actually set up the proxy server?

If you want to set up a proxy server, which one?

2 of my squid servers are command line only machines.

It is totally possible to configure squid from the command line, but you will need an editor like emacs or vi to do it. After installation, the only thing to do to get Squid up and running is to edit /etc/squid/squid.conf and change the variables to match your network.
