Depends on what apps need to talk to the Internet.  If you're looking at
MS Internet Explorer 3.0 or Netscape Navigator 1.2 or later, install the
socks port.  This is the only way I know to proxy SSL connections.  If you
need to proxy ftp, fwtk is the way to go, as most win FTP programs don't
grok socks.  I use a mix of both on my home network.
