That answers one question. It leaves the
other question unanswered, however, and my
psychic powers are very weak.

Tripwire.

md5sum.

Regular backups.

Those are my guesses - any additional details will likely get you better replies.

Don't bother with tripwire unless you are buying the commercial app (tripwire.com instead of .org). Us AIDE instead. (yum install aide). AIDE is capable of using other hashing algorithms and can keep a local or reference a remote database.
