The user says that he's running CentOS 5.7 and Gnome, but under Gnome the trash directory is simply named .Trash, not .Trash-root, and deleting a file from an NTFS file system mounted under Linux doesn't move it to .Trash. Anyway, I think we can all agree that if the hard disk will be replaced, it's better to overwrite the entire disk, using shred or dd (as John R. Pierce suggested), or a Windows utility.
