This works in Mathematica V6 just fine. It may be that you are using  
V5 or less in which case you need to

Show[] the graphic as below.

Show[Plot[{Sin[x], Sin[2 x], Sin[3 x]}, {x, 0, 2 Pi}]]

"6.0 for Mac OS X x86 (32-bit) (June 19, 2007)"


"Mac OS X x86 (32-bit)"

In asking questions it is a good practice to include version and  
system information and output and also (as you did) give code segments

without In[]s and Out[]s.
