Are they closely related?  You might like to try Artemis Comparison Tool,
from the Sanger Centre (  You'll need the 2
genomes in EMBL format.  You also need to BLAST them against each other and
process the output using MSPCrunch with the -d option.  Then you load the 2
genome files and the MSPCrunch output into ACT and get a nice graphical
representation that you can scroll through.  Check out the Sanger pages for
more info.
