really yes but you can't download with MSIE browser just can with Netscape
may be the others can.

 i had gotten the same problem in the past. i had received an answer like
the following from list but i couldn't try because of my clients are WinNT.

>squid is an http-proxy and not an ftp-proxy...

<*sigh*> Lukemftp _WORKS_WITH_SQUID_ I use it at home to fetch files
via my squid proxy when I do a package install. Accept no compromises.

``I do not need to'' because, as I said in my original message,
lukemftp will handle going through a squid proxy. Pay attention.
