Squid is great.  Another good one is called 'oops' which I've found to
be better on low-memory machines (I used to run it on a 24Mb P-100 along
with DNS, DHCP, etc).  For the common case, it supports everything squid
does (including authentication, ACL's, URL rewriting/redirection).  One
thing I do miss though is a 'squidclient' equivalent, mainly for the
'-r' switch.

Both are available in Debian.
