It's straightforward -- see examples in online help for Show[].

As an example, after defining a list of colours and a series of plots, we
can display them on the same axes using Show[].

	col = Hue[#/11.] & /@ Range[10];
	plt = Plot[BesselJ[#, x], {x, 0, 10}, 
			PlotStyle -> col[[#]], 
			DisplayFunction -> Identity] & /@ Range[10];

	Show[plt, DisplayFunction -> $DisplayFunction, PlotRange -> All];

Regards,

Dave.
