I have a cache directory, I am not sure if that is squid's cache directory

Dear all,

I am wondering if the cache directory I have belongs to squid. the reason is because that cache directory is at the path /var/spool/cache i.e not under the squid directory. I read from other people that most have a cache directory under the squid directory path such as /var/squid/cache.

also, because after I uninstalled my squid, that cache directory /var/spool cache is still there. that makes me wonder if that is a cache diretory existed when I first installed FC3 or is that belong to squid. maybe this could help clearify, the content of the cache directory is as follow:

*[root@matrix cache]# ls
00 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 0A 0B 0C 0D 0E 0F log log-last-clean netdb_state

*Does anyone of your squid cache has this content too?

thanks all.
