Try M-x load-file RET /user@host:/path/to/.emacs RET.  This logs into
host via ftp.  Then there is Tramp which allows you to use ssh
instead of ftp.  (Warning: I started Tramp.)

I think what I would do is to set up a CVS repository and put my dot
files in there, then write a Makefile that sets up symlinks from
$HOME to the locations in the CVS repository.  (That's actually what
I did.)  Then it becomes easy to access your dot files from anywhere,
and also the modifications will propagate if you check in on your
main machine and regularly update on the clients (or client's).
