FIltering for our church

I am wanting to configure a machine to do Internet filtering for our local church
I found Dans Gaurdian however it requires SUSE and SQUID
Is there any firewall/filtering solutions that are a single disk installation
I currnetly have UBUNTU on a machine
I need something to filter out all the porno etc on our churches wireless internet service
Any help would be greatly appreciated
Thanks

Re:FIltering for our church

So I take the configured UBUNTU Box with 2 network cards - Done that
Loaded UBUNTU - Done that
Loaded SQUID - Done that
Loaded Dans Firewall - Done that
FireStarter loaded - Done that

Am I am the right track here
Ethernet card 0 goes to my modem and grabs a IP Address from my ISP
The other network card – ETH1 goes to my linksys firewall?

On another thread I had this message

According to http://dansguardian.org/?page=download , Dan's Guardian is available for numerous Linux distributions. You shouldn't have to switch to SuSE just to use it. Dan's Guardian combined with Squid should be able to handle the content filtering you desire. For a firewall, you could use FireStarter

When I start the firestarter wizard It wants me to configure it
I am just a little apprehensive about doing all this as there is no “turn and burn” solution or maybe it’s just my lack of experience with Linux?

Any help you guys can give me would be greatly appreciated

Re:FIltering for our church

I'd like to hear this as a topic at one of the meetings...or a demo? I have a 2 year old and one on the way and eventually I may have to do something like this. Of course I'd have to shut off the filter when I'm on-line. JUST KIDDING! HA! Anyway, I was toying with the idea of setting up a kid's machine which only looked at the local hosts table for IP resolution. That way when they clicked on a site like www.naughty123456789.fr it wouldn't resolve and they'd get nothing. Only the hosts in the hosts table would be allowed....like www.google.com www.sesameworkshop.org and www.foxkids.com etc. Then if they want to visit a site they found on goole they'd have to ask me to add it and I'd manually add it to the hosts table. That'd work for very little kids, but it'd get old real quick for older kids.

I was reading somewhere that you could use tiny proxy instead of Squid
