network access control with transparent proxy server

I'm running gentoo.
I've installed squid and shorewall, and have a pretty good idea as to how shorewall works and how to set it up. Squid...I'm still figuring out.

I was wondering if maybe someone has a suggestion as to a better way of attacking my problem. I want one computer to act as the router, firewall, etc. Then, when anyone connects to the network with their computer, and open up a browser window, I want to redirect whatever they do to my internal website which will ask them for special credentials. Then after that, if successful, I want them to be able to search whatever websites and do whatever they want.

internet |
router/firewall/dhcp/apache/etc |
switch or hub |
random connections |
from other computers |

In shorewall, I see you can to mac filtering for whitelists, but I didn't see a way to do this dynamically. Also, when a mac isn't found in a list, I can only reject or drop the request, I can't tell it to redirect....or can I? I hope someone can help me figure this out...i've been beating my head against the wall for hours now

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
