I think these are the correct names of the aspell dictionaries. "German8" is 
clearly an ispell name.

When you have ispell/aspell/flyspell/whatever magic spell correctly configured, 
you should be able to manually invoke

        M-x ispell-change-dictionary RET

(I *only* use ispell; this works) or whatever command is available for flyspell 
and then press TAB to see in a *Completions* buffer the dictionaries to choose 
one from. If this fails, then you have to set up a bit more, for example the 
path to the directory with the dictionaries.

To share one user init file between different systems you can use the variable 
system-type to distinguish between the systems.
