How to enable filesystem auditing: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310399

You could go to the advanced permissions (On Windows 7, click on the advance button at the bottom of the security tab, don't remember offhand for XP & 2003, but it's similar) for the user or usergroup in question and remove the delete privilege. That would allow them to create & modify files still, but prohibit them from deleting things. If you do this on the folder, it may cause issues with MS Office not being able to delete the temp files it creates whenever it opens a document.

Removing modify permissions would work as well, but would also stop them from editing the files.

Windows Server 2003 was based on Windows XP and was released in four editions: Web, Standard, Enterprise and Datacenter. It also had derivative versions for clusters, storage and Microsoft’s Small Business Server. Important upgrades included integrating Internet Information Services (IIS), improvements to Active Directory (AD) and Group Policy (GP), and the migration to Automated System Recovery (ASR).
