Hmm not entirely sure what you mean. But with Mercurial (good
distributed SCM), you could share your .config files with something like
this:

        cd ~
        hg init
        hg add .emacs .emacs/* .screenrc
        hg commit

Whenever you make changes, just do

        hg commit

Then on any other server, something like

        cd ~
        hg init
        hg pull ssh://address@hidden/~/

would get the files. Subsequent changes could be retrieved with a simple

        hg pull -u

or 'pushed' to another server with

        hg push ssh://address@hidden/~/

Doesn't get much simpler than that :)
