[Samba] Disappearing Shares?

I am new to Linux and running SuSE V8.0 with KDE desktop and 
Samba 2.2.7 on a small bnetwor5k which also has a Windows NT 
PC and a notebook.

On the Linux PC's I have used LinNeighborhood to mount the 
various shares and can readily view files on the Linux PC's, or on 
the windoze machines.

I have had a number of occasions where I have had to power down 
my main Linux PC, and far more often the windoze PC (which is 
also presently my gateway to the net via ADSL).

My problem is that although I have set preferences in 
LinNeighborhood to memorise mounted shares and remount at next 
startup, this doesn't happen.  I may have restarted my Linux PC and 
the gone to Konqueror to view or transfer a file from the windows 
PC and find that the share has either disappeared totally from the 
mount point (home/john/mnt) or I can access the drive, but cannot 
see any files.

What I really want is to set the shares so that if a machine has to 
down, all shares are automagically reconnected, and files are 
visible. Couls someone advise me on how best to accomplish this?
