Yes, I have done that, per instructions in both the old and new README

I have already. It does not, any longer, give the information that
I need. I am hoping that the information is meerly moved to a 
different place, and that someone will point me to where it is.

I think that one must do something to redirect the browser unless one
configures the proxy to be a 'transparent' proxy, that is configue it
to listen on port 80. But ... the adzapper docs make no mention of how
to do this either. The docs did, in the past, give a default port
number and advice on how to set up transparency. Adzapper, as packaged
for Squeeze, does not make squid listen on port 80.
