Check out Squid Guard:

Squid is an open-source proxy. You'll have to set up a firewall rule
to route all web traffic through Squid, or push out a rule to all
desktops to force them to use your squid proxy. From there, Squid
Guard acts as a URL Filter and has a reporting piece. I haven't used
squid guard on my Squid proxies, but I've used Squid quite often, and
it works well.

Cheers. You are a life saver. I'll download it and run a few tests over the weekend.
