yes, we can help you, but we need more info, and it would be great if you could be more specific as to what exactly you need help with...

what have you got so far?? where are you stuck?? how did you install squid?? what does your squid.conf look like currently?? how is your iptables configured?? etc, etc, etc...

a squid installation usually goes like:

- download squid source code...

- compile squid source code...

- install squid...

- edit squid.conf, setting the proper cache directory and any other options you need...

- make sure your cache directory permissions are properly set...

- make sure your firewall isn't blocking tcp port 3128 (or whichever you configured squid to listen on)...

- create the cache structure with a "squid -z"...

- execute squid...

- test squid...

- edit squid.conf and fix any issues you spotted while testing...

- reload the new squid.conf with a "squid -k reconfigure"...
