Georeferencing Bitmaps with no spatial reference data

I have a set of scanned maps as .bmp files. These maps have no georeferencing, grids or any CRS data associated with them, and very few geographic features that can be used to georeference these maps. I can locate the approximate location manually, but there are polygon areas on these maps I need to georeference  for a project. I was hoping to use a rubber-sheeting method to get these maps georeferenced as best I could but can't get the .bmp image to show up on the ArcMap mxd that has the base layer I want to align it with. Any ideas?? Thanks very much
