First of all, this is a debian list and it´s probably different the
default settings of mandrake and debian. May be a Mandrake list will
help you more ;-)
And now the matter. ¿the stations can connect to internet? (web, mail, pings...)
You can try to access directly without proxy to find if the problem is
in the proxy or the firewall, and look what services work or don´t
(windows update, msn, etc).
Keep in mind that default squid only works with http traffic.
Sort answer, we need more info.
