You cannot really save the selection itself, but you can save and reuse
a channel. To be more precise, XCF files allow you to save the selection,
but then it will be difficult to reuse that selection in another file.
The best solution is to convert your selection to a channel (using the
menu "Select->Save to Channel") and then save that channel to a file.
You can then reload that file later and copy the channel into any other
image. You can use Channel to Selection in the Layers/Channel/Paths
window when you want to convert that channel back into a selection. Or
you can just click on the pretty buttons...
