Hi all, I'm very new to Linux, and have yet to actually install Squid Proxy-Cache on a server, but I've been told its a great product, and I look forward to testing it out. However, in doing my research for Squid, I had a silly question? How does a proxy work? Essentially, all I want to know is if Squid-Proxy Can be told to only replace a page in its cache under certain cercumstances? For example, can we set up a rule-set so that the cached page is only replaced if their is a new link added to the page, but not if a banner changes? If so, would it be possibly to store only new links in a database of some sort so that we don't have to be bothered with downloading anything but the new link information? Sorry if this is a silly question, but I appreciate your consideration and help! Sincerely, Herc

As stated above, I would like to place Squid Proxy-Cache on a Debian system running an old PII-233 with 128MB of RAM and 4GB of hard drive space. I know this won't cache a lot of information, but I would like to see how it would work as a test bench.
