It's been a long time since I've played with Linux in general, last one was
RH. If Mandrake has ipchains or ipfw, I'd say go with either and still use
squid. It's popular, easy to configure, works well and has support. It
shouldn't need any routing daemon as long as none of the advanced routing
protocols are needed.
