I am working through Glide's "Ascension's Atlas Style in GIMP" (http://www.cartographersguild.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=30650&d=1288649425) Tutorial and I have a question (not sure if it has been asked before).

On page 2 of the PDF step 5 asks to fill with a linear gradient and refers to Ascension's original Photoshop tutorial. I need to know how to add the color steps from the Photoshop tutorial in Gimp.

From Ascension:
"Add a layer style of gradient overlay. We’ll use 4 colors with 5 stops as follows:
Color 1 at the 5% position is flat white, color code FFFFFF (RGB 255, 255, 255)
Color 2 at the 35% position is a dark olive green, color code 405018 (RGB 64, 80, 24)
Color 3 at the 60% position is the same dark olive green
Color 4 at the 85% position is a dark flesh, color code DAC094 (RGB 218, 192, 148)
Color 5 at the 100% position is a papyrus, color code F0E6BE (RGB 240, 230, 190)."

Thanks for your help in advance

Well you could create your own gradient using these presets, but in case you don't know how to do this, I've uploaded a copy of this gradient to this post. You will need to save it to the gradients folder of GIMP.

How do you make your own gradient presets? I had trouble with the above file, it kept coming up as an error when I tried to use it on the Adjust curves screen.

Hm, not sure what the problem is, but here is a link (http://graphicssoft.about.com/od/gimptutorials/ss/Gradient-Editor.htm) to a good little tutorial on how to make a custom gradient.
