Angry how to use squid for internet security on client terminals


I have 5 terminals connected to a linux based server.
two of my terminals are having windows 98 and other have linux.
I want that when using internet from a terminal i.e opening a browser like IE (win98) it should first ask for username and password and if correct then only it shoudl give access to internet.
I know it can be done using squid but plz tell me exactly what are the steps to do it . M still a newbie

You'll need to set up Squid as a transparent proxy with authentication. That is covered in this document.

By the way, when I googled for "squid transparent proxy authentication", that was the first result that came up. This document, also relevant, is first when googling for "squid proxy password".
