Re: replacement for rm?

You can either

a) Alias rm to rm -i, which is default for the root user

b) rename rm (to rm.cmd for example) and then create a wrapper script
called rm that does whatever logic you want then calls rm (however, in
your case it would be calling mv if you wanted to move something to a
.Trash folder)

c) Don't let users on your systems that can't be trusted with basic commands.

Just a couple options.
