You need to sample the image to turn it into a gradient.

Assuming the image is nothing but a gradient (like this):

use this script: http://registry.gimp.org/node/15847

to turn it into a Gimp Palette you can use. If it is a vertical gradient, rotate it first.

Save scripts into your personal gimp script directory.

If XP it would be something like C:\Documents and settings\loginname\.gimp2.6\scripts (for version 2.6)
Linux is under .gimp2.6\scripts in your home directory.
