Downloading huge files.

I'm wondering if it's possible to make insert something into the squid.conf
so that when someone requests {http,ftp}://<whatever>/netscape.exe (or
whatever) that I can point it to a local file I've previously downloaded?

I've got a lot of users that want to keep up with the latest of everything
and by the time they try to get it it'sout of the cache - I know of the
refresh_patterns, but that's not exactly what I'm after.

On another note - I've got a parent and a couple of neighbours set up that
are working fine. What I'd like to know is how to stop FTP get requests in
particular to the parent. If the parent has the FTP file, fine, let's get
it from them - but if they don't, let's get it direct (a bit like an ICP
only request for ftp://).
