I got Squid installed with squidGaurd. It appears to be working as I have
denied port 80 from the internal interface using IPFW and if the proxy is
not used internet no worky.. ;-)
I'm having troubles now figuring out how to get a good list of site to block
and where to put them. I have read something about a db being used and also
found a script that I can add to cron that will update the db list.
I think a great deal of my confusion is related to my lack of understanding
how this squidGaurd works. I'm heading to the site yet again.. Thanks in
advance for any assistance.

I'd look at squid+squidguard. Both are opensource and available in ports.
