I use two different Landsat datasets in different computers. But the region settings I work is the same. Is it possible to export the region settings in the form of a file in GRASS?

The region files reside within the windows folder of your mapset, and provided that the projection information is the same between the mapsets, can safely be copied. You can generate a saved region by typing g.region save=test, here's an example file:

proj:       99
zone:       0
north:      1724519.03591606
south:      -1658266.80294581
east:       2745189.73967152

... or you copy over the WIND file stored within the mapset. – markusN Mar 9 '11 at 22:07
