use unrestricted computer as gateway

Dear friends,

I am having some strange requirements.
In my office we all are suppose to use internet by proxy.
Squid is installed as proxy.
we are given a username and password, that we are suppose to authenticate our selves before we can use internet. But tell u some rules are very bad, like we can not download file from net larger than 3MB,etc. Squid is configured with strict policy.

Now, for R & D purpose i am having root access to an unrestricted computer, which is connected to Internet directly. and there is no such limit, as i can use wget to download files of anysize on that machine.
it uses fedora 10.
i am using fedora 12.

Now is there any way i can configure these two PC to use unrestricted net. I mean can i configure my pc to use Internet via that unrestricted pc.
What are the changes i will be needed to do at my PC and other open net PC?

I am having root access to both PC.
Your help will be very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
