There is actually a way to do some of this now in Windows 2000 without an outside program. If you go to the Services management console, double-click on a given service and look at the Recovery tab, you can assign actions to a service when/if it fails for the first, second or nth time, including running an outside script, restarting the service or the whole machine, or taking no action at all. This may spare you the need for a third-party solution for something this specific.
