First of all, please don't send attachments to the list. Their size is

Instead, you can simply copy the error message from the terminal:
      * Select text in the terminal with the left mouse button pressed
      * Then paste text into an email by clicking the middle mouse
        button (or wheel)

As for the error, I have no experience with squid, but it seems to me
that you need to set a fully qualified hostname. The answer should be
here: http://www.google.de/search?q="fully+qualified+hostname"+squid

What is the content of /etc/hostname ? I guess it is just
"naymyowin-desktop", but missing the domain part. I _think_ you either
need to set a fully qualified hostname in this file, that is, including
a domain part. Or you can edit squid.conf and set the visible_hostname
tag there.
