Yeah. Here maybe some examples for this

Solved it in my ~/.emacs file that way:

(cond ((string-match "XEmacs\\|Lucid" emacs-version)
       (when (file-readable-p "~/.xemacs/init.el")
         (load "~/.xemacs/init.el" nil t)))
      ((or (string-match "22" (emacs-version))
           (string-match "23" (emacs-version)))
           (file-readable-p "~/.gnu-emacs-cvs-custom")
           (progn (load "~/.gnu-emacs-cvs-custom" t t)


      ((string-match "21.4" (emacs-version))
           (file-readable-p "~/.gnu-emacs-custom")
           (progn (load "~/.gnu-emacs-custom" t t)
      (t (message "%s" "No Emacs init file found"))) 

Extendable with

(when (string-match "my-host" (getenv "HOST")))

for example.
