Hello Pu,

There is a file called databases found in the $GISBASE/etc sub-directory.
This gives the path of the
default database. I have edited this file to give the path where I installed
the sample database
downloaded from moon. Your own locations and mapsets can then be created
within this database when 
you enter GRASS4.1 (not XGRASS4.1). Thereafter, you should be able to select
these locations and mapsets
from future XGRASS4.1 sessions.

Hope this helps,
