Since it seems that you are using a version of Mathematica below 6.0, a
good way to achieve what you want is to use the *StackGraphics* as in
In[1]:=
$Version
Out[1]=
5.2 for Microsoft Windows (June 20, 2005)
In[2]:=
Needs["Graphics`Graphics3D`"]
eqn=y'[x]\[Equal]b/(a y[x]);
par={b\[Rule]1};
solution=Table[NDSolve[{eqn/.par,y[0]\[Equal]0.1},y,{x,0.1,5}],{a,1,5}];
Block[{$DisplayFunction=Identity},
gtab=Table[Plot[Evaluate[y[x]/.solution[[a]]],{x,0.1,5}],{a,1,5}];
]
Show[StackGraphics[gtab]];
