NFS mountpoint monitoring

Hello,
I have a RHEL 5.4 with NFS mounts of a bunch of Windows shares using the mount.cifs command.  I have two questions:

1. I would like to have the mount re-mount after a Windows share goes away and comes back online.

2. Monitor failed/successful mount of the remote Windows share via messages file (some sort of auditing?)

Any guidance on how to achieve these objectives would be helpful.

Regards,
Chris

PS actual windows clients disconnect sessions after some time thus autofs would be just mimicking them...
