Two ways:

1. Generate the mask from a vector file with
	0 for nodata
	1 for mask area
   and then generate your raster file with

2. Use r.reclass on your current raster file that you want to use and set all
   of the categories that you want included in your mask to 1, and set all of
   those that are outside of the mask (Area that will no be visible in the end) to
   a 0.

E-mail me privately if you have any trouble.
