Many different ways to do this, but try:

1. Open image #1
2. Go to Image -> Canvas Size.  Go ahead and add more than enough room
for the other images
3. File->Open as Layers, select Images #2 and #3.
4. Save as XCF
5. Select each new layer (in the layer dialog) and use the move tool
to position, or other tools if you need to rotate, scale etc.
6. When done, save  - then Image->Flatten Image, Image->Autocrop
7. Save as PNG or JPEG (or whatever format you need).

Hmm - I'm not sure if GIMP version 2.4 has "open as layers".  If not,
instead of step 3:
1. Open image #2, select all, copy, close
2. Paste into image #1
3. Click on the "new layer" icon in layers dialog (turn floating
selection into new layer)
4. Repeat for image #3
The rest of the steps would be the same.
