I use squid and dansguardian. Very easy to setup.

I have never tried squid but it seems quite a big package. I have also
seen oops but not sure which to choose. Basically, will squid not be an overkill for a family network consisting of 3-4 machines? The box I want to devote for gateway/pc purposes is a Compaq PIII 866 Mhz with 512 MB RAM
and 40GB HD.

Squid works just fine for a single-user environment, even, especially if you use an adblocker and/or override the local DNS for annoying adfarm sites to return just a transparent 1x1 pixel GIF image instead of the ads. Squid is noticeably smarter about figuring out when to recheck web resources for changes and do so efficiently compared to pretty much all of the local caching done by browsers.
