In first step I want to authenticate my users to allow them to go on 
Internet through my squidguard which is filtering the asked request by 
groups without oblige the users to re-enter their login/password couple 
each time they send a request.

After I would like to allow all my users who works both on Windows's 
computers and Linux's computers with only one centralized profile.

No I have no need to any Active Directory, I don't know what that could 
helps to me and I don't know exactly what it is.

And my last and most important requirement, I would like to be able to 
do everything with Linux OS.

Thanks a lot for your answer which has confirmed me lots of things...

If you have any howto to purpose it will be very pleasant,
