cache_effective_user nobody nobody

Will not work, squid outputs that should not be run as root,etc.

User nobody Group nobody do exist. I am using Squid 1.1.10
I can su to nobody then run RunCache& and everything works.
Please help, I am new to squid and like it so far, but it would be nice if I
could run it at startup time in an rc.proxy script.

I am using RedHat 5.0

Thanks for any reply
