Arrow Internet Content Filtering for business network

i am wondering what is a good (cheap) software I can use in a corporate environment to control access and content for Web surfing.

The software should run on either Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES or Mandrake Professional (?) and be compatible with Windows XP workstations.

Auditing and computer management components would be a bonus.

I do NOT know if RH Enterprise Linux already has content filtering. If it does, let me know

Thank you, I believe Red Hat Enterprise Linux comes with Squid. Howver, I read the page at (Thanks for the link) It looks like what I wanted, but it was like it was written in another language . I don't know all this stuff, I would prefer to work with preconfigured software, so I (my company) is willing to pay for the service.

However, I will consider using squidguard and look into this solution further.

Thanks Tinkster and pxlpluker for your help
