Question How to set up Linux as a proxy server for internet access?

Hi all,

I was wondering how it would be possible to set up Linux as a proxy server for internet access... I've looked for how-tos and couldn't find one dealing with the issue... I can ping the other machine and I can access the internet using the other machine as a proxy (its a Win2000 laptop). Now I want to try it the other way around... Feel free to point me in the right direction if I've missed it

Thanks is advance,

Linux has a beauty Proxy server called Squid.

If you have registered with RHN, you can
up2date -i squid-2.4.STABLE3-1.7.2:7
and let the rpm do all the hard work.

There are how-to's in the Squid website
