Greetings ...

	I have been give the task of either finding a way to stop people from 
deleting files from our Samba network, or as I suggest that would be less 
problematic, would be to log deletion requests.

	I know of the "Samba Recycle Bin" which I will be implimenting with the 
Samba 2.2.5 release which is just round the corner, but I was hoping that I 
might be able to impliment a logging system of what files were modified and 
delete and maybe more.  I was think that should not be a big thing to 
impliment in a VFS module and will be looking into this, but Samba 2.2 does 
not casade VFS modules, so I would have to do this Samba Head, which I am 
not happy about doing, because I am alread getting trouble because Linux is 
the unknow in all of this.

	I don't wish to change to M$ product for my server and believe that we can 
do better with an Open Source Product, but without proof that the Linux box 
is not the problem, but the users are.  I am looking a solution that would 
give me something close to Netwares salvage or more the logging so that I 
can proof that a user deleted the files and not some ghost.

	If anybody has a suggestion, please let me know.  Thanks.


P.S. You can't do an undelete on ext3, so that is out of the question.
