You're probably thinking of samba, which is an implementation of the SMB
protocol (server-side) for *nix-systems. The operating system using SMB as
client is most probably Windows in case you set up a samba server.
squid is an HTTP-proxy. Something completely different. And setting it up (at
least with a default configuration, which you'll have to adapt) is simply
installing the port and starting it.
