I can't find the "Production Contouring" in the "Toolbars" menu (spatial analyst and 3d analyst are activated)... – Marinheiro Dec 2 '10 at 17:04
Ok you don't have ESRI Production Mapping extension - try DEM Mosaic… – Mapperz Dec 2 '10 at 18:10

In ArcGIS 10, this can be done on-the-fly.

One of the new features being to create a Mosaic Dataset. There is also the Image Analysis window that will allow you to apply filters, do processing, analysis, also on-the-fly.

These two tools can save you tonnes of processing time and disk space, as data will not be duplicated.
