How to draw a nice planetmap, to be used on a sphere? Something like this, but then beautiful instead: Image Hosted by ImageShack.us Is the gimp good enough to draw something nice?

Gimp is the best free graphics application out there. It won't draw it for you, but it is certainly a nice tool to use to do so.

A good way to draw an actual globe map is to use ZBrush and actually digitally paint onto a globe.

I think you would need at least a bump map too to get some good looking planets.
You know, mountains, craters, defined surface features etc...
