If you have 100s of servers then in my suggestion you should opt for MOM 2005 or SCOM 2007 for complete monitoring.
if you have limited number of server then you can follow the steps, but you need to create an script.

... Open services console (services.msc)
... go to the properties of the desired service. go to the Recovery tab.
... select either of the required level of failure action. you can select "First failure" action and assign script in "Run a Program" action option.
... save the setting by clicking ok

for this you have to create an script which can send an email or network alert.
you can also run command in the script to try restarting the service
