Question SQUID, Ubuntu, Transparent Proxy

Hi everybody,

I'm trying to configure essentially an all windows network to forward HTTP traffic through a SQUID cache that is outside our control automatically (without browser proxy config). ie:

[Windows Clients] -----> [External Squid Cache] -----> [Internet]

I have found many guides which all seem to suggest that I need another cache between the windows clients and the external cache:

[Windows Clients] -----> [New Squid] -----> [External Squid Cache] -----> [Internet]

Unfortunately, I have been unable to successfully configure this, as I am not a linux sysadmin!

Network details:
DHCP Server:
DNS Server:
Default Gateway:
Subnet Mask:
External Squid Cache:

If possible I would like to do this without a network bridge, (run squid inside a virtual machine?) but if I need to I can.

Can someone point me in the right direction please?!
