Use replication or DTS for MS/SQL Server and ODBC linked table?

I have a linked server on an MS/SQL Server from a remote ODBC datasource. What I'd like to do is replicate changes from the linked table to a physical database within SQL Server. This should also delete items that were deleted on the ODBC datasource. Is this something that can be handled natively (via replication or DTS), or do I have to get a 3rd party software to monitor this?

It is an AcuServerODBC (Acucorp). I have the client driver installed on this SQL machine, so I can open the table and view it's contents.

I think you need to go for some third party solution since  replication or DTS will not drop the objects with in the sql server. Both are to replicate the data changes. You cant even make a schema change in the replicated tables. Try using the DDL triggers and DTS package combination or else 3rd party would be better.
