Which Content Filter?

I was givin the project of setting up the squid proxy server thing for my school, and now I am stuck between dansguardian, or squidguard... I need a few reviews on each of these, to make my decision...

squidGuard looks easier to install and maintain (to me....), but I am still stuck between which is the easiest to work with, they both use the same blacklist (at least to my understanding...), so I don't see that part changing my mind.

Pre-Thank you,

EDIT: This is on a RH9 box with the minimal install selected, and only Squid and squidguard OR dansguardian, nothing else....

I have been running SquidGuard for a good long while now. It is easy to maintain, and you can create custom blacklists based on your network traffic that may differ from the robot-generated lists. There is also a webmin module for SquidGuard that makes remote management a breeze.
