My .emacs looks like this:
;;; -*- Mode: Emacs-Lisp -*-
;;; This is $Id: .emacs,v 1.66 1999/04/18 22:25:08 aichner Exp $.
;;; Please do not edit this file!

(format "%s-%s" user-init-file system-configuration))
;; End of .emacs
This works for me because 21.1 uses
while 21.2 used
I use the same packages for both though.
I suppose you could try setting
`pui-package-install-dest-dir' (buffer: *Hyper Apropos*, mode: Hyper-Apropos)
Customizable user variable:
*If non-nil (Automatic) path to package tree to install packages in.
Otherwise, use old path for installed packages and make a guess for
custom-type: (choice (const :tag "Automatic" nil)
custom-tag: "Install Location"
to "~/.xemacs"although I have not tried this.
Hope this helps,
