I suspect that I don't quite understand the total problem-space you are
When I was playing around with squid, what seemed to bite me was that I
couldn't do an http kickstart install, because I didn't see any way to
get anaconda to use an http proxy configuration. I asked on either the
anaconda or kickstart list, and never got an answer. I'm just wondering
if anaconda could easily (does it already?) input an http proxy config
to use, that would solve my needs just using the simplest squid config.
