Then the easiest solution is to set up three aliases on the proxies 
ethernet card e.g.

ifconfig eth0 netmask
ifconfig eth0:0 netmask
ifconfig eth0:1 netmask

Remember you'll need to overhaul your squid acls to allow all the 
clients access. What is it that you're trying to acheive by splitting up 
the client base?
