why not rip everything out as it sounds far to complicated a set up for 
only 35 machines.
Plug the adsl into an untangle firewall which will then give you nat, 
virus scanning and a few other things. then either ditch the squid 
although or run it on a vm somewhere - perhaps on the same box running 
the untangle firewall

Remember KISS
