Thanks for the response. Ive tried your suggestions and have put */spearfish/ under c:/msys/1.0/GRASSDATA.
Im still getting the following errors:
1. when I attempt to create a new mapset, I get:
"Error: couldnt change working directory to "c:/msys/1.0/grassdata/#error#": no such file or directory"
I have created two folders under */spearfish/ (As I think you had suggested) called "permanent" and "user1"
When I attempt to select one of these as my mapset, grass indicated that they're not valid.
It would seem that when grass starts, It wants to look into: "c:/documents and Settings/myusername/*" for a datadir. Can/should I change this? Do you know what file controls this?

Jeremy, Im no an expert int Grass, in fact I was with the same problems as
you a couple of days before. I only can tell you how I resolved them, but Im
have not idea if this is the better way.
1. Every time I start grass I get the following warning:
"Invalid database. Finding first valid directory in parent tree"
It would seem that grass always wants to start from my user
folder (ie: c:/docs and settings/user/). Should/can I change the default
to point to a grass database?
I had to create a new folder GRASSDATA in C:\msys\1.0\ and copy the
spearfish60 in that, so the Permanent and user1 folders are in
If I tried to do this in c:\whatever\...\spearfish60, Grass tried to find
that folder in C:\whas\1.0\, or something similar, I dont kno why but does a
"mix" if I don't use the above address.
2. After 'ok'ing my way outta the above mentioned warning, I
proceed to indicate to GRASS where I have put the spearfish set of
sample data. I have this data in the following dir:
After doing the first step, run grass and in the Starup scrren, chose
C:/msys/1.0/GRASSDATA as GIS Data Directory, spearfisch60 as poject Location
and if you want a new mapset, write its name in "create new mapset in
selected loation", hit "create new mapset" and it has to work!!
Well, that is all what I can tell you, I hope it help you. Good luck!!!
