I have not tried version 2 of samba but I have read the documentation for
version two and it seems to have all the same features, althoug the syntax
is slightly different. This is what I have in my smb.conf. So far I can
see that a directory .recycle is created but it does not show up in my
windows browser, yet. I still have to get to the point where users can
restore items.

;recyclebin options for samba version 3
recycle:exclude = *.tmp *.temp *.o *.obj ~$*
recycle:keeptree = True
recycle:touch = True
recycle:versions = True
recycle:noversions = .doc|.xls|.ppt
recycle:repository = .recycle
recycle:maxsize = 10000000
create mask = 0777
directory mask = 0777
vfs objects = recycle
