I trust the images are being ftp'ed in binary mode?  Can you view them
under Linux okay, say with GIMP, XV, or some other image viewer?

TIFF files are not platform dependent and may be big or little endian
(the reader must handle both).  I have transferred TIFF's to Win NT
and used them in ArcView and Arc/Info with no problems.  So, I'm not
sure what the problem is here...
