Depending on the hardware you're using (this could be dirt-cheap if
you're using commodity PC hardware) you could simply add another
ethercard to the Squid server, giving it an address on the Sprintlink
side. Make sure you have a route defined out that card to your friend's
network via the Sprintlink router, and leave the default route pointing
out the original card at your MCI router. Let him use the new address
as a sibling; traffic both ways should take the short route through
