It only takes a second to run a text search on squid.conf, you don't have to
read the whole thing.

I don't have any special setting for that in the squid.conf file on my F8 and
Centos 5 computers.  I vaguely remember having to set that option previously; I
think it was when I was using a single-word name for my computer.  After I
started using a "fully qualified" name, I no longer had to set it.  (This
computer is named mutt.melvilletheatre.net -- if I had named it mutt then I
would have to put a fully qualified name in the squid.conf file.)

What do you get when you type

hostname

at a bash prompt?
