No. There was no step by step to follow. So the best I can do is to
try to figure out what to do first. I guess I missed that.

Scanning through /etc/squid/squid.conf for this, I take it that this is
to allow anyone on your home network to access the internet through the
squid on your PC? I don't currently have a home network, but may later
set one up. I already have the NIC in this PC. Should I go ahead and
insert these two lines in anticipation (before doing -z)?

With its default config, is squid likely to speed up my 24K pipe?
