Squid and DMZ network

I am running Squid2.2STBL3 on a RedHat5.2 for a while without any major problems. My squid talks to another Linux server with FTWK, which acts as a cache parent to squid.

Nowadays, newer firewalls allow for three network connections, 1) Internet, 2) Protected, and 3)DMZ for mail servers, Web systems, Customer access servers, etc. Firewall then controls the 3way access by IPAddress/port mapping filters.

I have two questions:

1) Can I run squid without any parent, i.e. Direct access to Internet through a firewall?

2) Can I run squid on a DMZ network off a firewall? Now my system will have only one Network card.

My users will first connect to Squid server on the DMZ network, then squid system will redirect requests to the Internet.
