squid and dansguardian on MDK 10.2

Have read the docs at squid, sourceforge and DG, but they don't reflect what I have in my configuration files. I have not altered these files since installing them.
For example, squid is not installed into /usr as indicated by docs. Also, squid must be altered to allow users by uncommenting, but my file has everything commented/uncommented differently than I am used to so it (docs) are of no value.

Is this peculiar to MDK?

Any help out there?

All major distros follow the FHS ( when they do their packaging. This means they change the installation prefix for the installation from /usr/local to /usr and ensure that things like binaries and configuration files don't go into wacky and inconsistent locations. In short your squid config files will be in /etc/squid/ on any major Linux distro even if the squid people have them default to somewhere in /usr.

They wouldn't have made any changes to the config file though - its normal to have a 2500 line config file for squid () with almost everything commented. The only changes Mandriva might have made is if you run the internet sharing wizard after you installed it as that sets squid up as a transparent proxy.
