Hello Samba Gurus

I found a program that I think may be usefull if I can get it to work with 
Samba.  I am using RedHat 6.2 and I found a program included with the 
PowerTools called safedelete-1.3.  I read the man page for safedelete and 
it mentions creating a system alias "alias rm='/usr/bin/safedelete'"  so 
when you use rm to delete a file it will get backed up to a specified 
folder. This works fine, So now I am wondering what actually happens when a 
Samba client deletes a file? And is there any way to have the safedelete 
program handle the deleted file instead of letting Samba handle it.

Any Info would be greatly appreciated.
Thank You,
