http://whyiamright.wordpress.com/2008/01/18/changing-the-diffmerge-program-used-by-visual-studio/  .. this is how you can integrate a 3rd party diff tool.
http://www.sourcegear.com/diffmerge/index.html  - another free tool

Let me know if you still need assistance and I will reopen this question for you.
