How to setup a linux internet server

Hi Mate

I would like to setup a linux machine with a proxy, ideally squid proxy and a content filter such as dansguardian. I found a lot of tutorials online but since I am new to linux I couldnt manage and I am really confused. Can you perhaps guide me on how I can setup such a server?. So far I was able to install ubuntu 8.04, install all its updates through update manager, downloaded dansguardian and tinyproxy through synaptics but then i am stuck. i know I have to edit a conf file and other things but i am stuck...also dont know how i should make the server to route the connection so other PCs can connect through it...(ip tables?).

Your help is greatly appreciated!!! Thanks

Here is my advice - go to, put 'squid' in search and find the howto that suits your needs the most (there will be many but probably won't be a tutorial specifically for *buntu -just go with Debian). Follow instructions exactly and if anything seems unclear or you don't know how to complete a certain step just post here with details where you are stuck and you'll get help.
