I want to restrict the Internet usage for a couple of Windows users on a network. The Server is a Ubuntu 10.04 Server running Webmin - all Windows users are setup as users on the Ubuntu server to authenticate to the Samba shares.

What I'd like to do is setup a proxy server on the Server that all users are routed through, and a few specific users would be restricted to access only a whitelist of websites, perhaps at specific times of the day.

What's a good way to achieve this using Ubuntu and Webmin?

This may sound rude, but avoid Webmin. Only if you intend NOT to learn something, you should use Webmin.

So all your requirements can easily be done with Squid

I don't know much about webmin, but I am pretty sure that squid can do what you want.
