Bitmaps and Large Bitmaps

I am trying to create a very large bitmap (approx 6000X6000) and am
having no luck.  a 6000X6000 bitmap with 3 bytes per pixel takes approx
108 meg of memory.  Is there anyway that I can create this bitmap?? like
in a virtual file or something?

 Any help appreciated

see on your monitor ?

printer.width=4000 printer.height=4000
