There is an action called 'upload_files_upload', which is called from 
upload.php for file upload management. You should be able to add to 
that, using add_action, with a high priority so your function is 
called first. See upload-functions.php in wp-admin for information on 
what it is doing now... if you have been writing plugins, this is 
probably enough to get you started?

Hope this helps --
