sorry i thought you are not doing nat in gateways. if you do and cat 
change it - change it, but it's not a requirement.

replace DSL1_subnet with DSL1_outgoing address etc., if all 
gateways are connected by switch replace gw*_ethernet with the same.

you must start with different outgoing addresses (simple in squid) for 
each gateway.
