Lightbulb How to make squid proxy transparent?

How to make squid proxy transparent?

I have configured a Squid proxy server with some ACLs but we have to check from client side whether those ACLs work or not ,I have to open their firefox and manually enter my machine's i.e. proxy server's ip, only after entering this ip , Those ACLs work properly.

But now I want to make it work without manually entering the proxy on clients machine.

I guess transparent proxy is the solution, but how to configure it/

Please guide me and I am one of the machine in LAN.
