hello,

this is actually fairly easy to do.  index the image
(<Image>Image-->Mode-->Indexed) and use the palette that you want from
that dialog.

if you need to grab the palette from another image, it is a bit more
complicated.  i wrote a tutorial about it here:
http://carol.gimp.org/gimp/palettes/howto.html

hope this helps :)
