Software for editing LARGE TIFF files

I just got myself a new computer with Windows XP installed.  Previously my old system had Windows 2000.  Part of my job is to manage a large number of drawings that are scanned as TIFF files.  In 2000 Windows Imaging worked GREAT for embedding the scanned Tiff files with text. (I would basically electronically stamp the drawings OBSOLETE as newer revisions became available.)  The viewing software that comes with XP doesn't work well at doing this job.  Does anyone have any recommendations for any software that will do this for me?  (Freeware would be preferable)  Please keep in mind that these are not small drawings.  Some of these drawings are 36"x100", so that's why the basic Windows software won't work.  Even if anyone knows if the old NT/2000 Imaging software can be downloaded for XP, as I know it works for what I need.

I actually found a way to do what I want by extracting the old Imaging files from my old 2000 machine.  It works great.  I've included the link so anyone can check it out if interested.
