Squid and iptables

I have a squid proxy server, internet is on eth0 and eth1 is local LAN, and several other boxes getting their IP's via DHCP, all fine no problem. Squid uses port 3128 and I had to point all the browsers of the other boxes to this port using the rules added to my firewall:-

iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i eth1 -p tcp --dport 80 \

-j REDIRECT --to-ports 3128

iptables -A OUTPUT -j ACCEPT -m state --state NEW -o eth0 \

-p tcp --dport 80

Is it possible to configure the iptables rules so that all the browsers point to the standard port 80 and it gets redirected to 3128. I have httpd running, but only for the LAN, I do not require it to be accessible from 'outside'.

Thanx in advance.

My knowledge of iptbales is limited to say the least....
