ok, so it hangs. Specifically define "it" and "hangs".

OK, well if it crashes like it sounds, there really should be something suitable in the logs. Also check /var/log/messages. You can also run the squid daemon in the foreground and wait until it crashes, catching all stdout and stderr messages using "-N -d 3" flags (3 is actually my guess at a logging level, you might want a higher or lower number.)
