Dealing with Server Configuration

From: Chris Jensen <cjensen_at_edex.com.au>

We're implementing version control here for the first time with
subversion. And I'm wondering if anyone can suggest ways of dealing with
server specific configuration files.
In our case we have the developers desktops, a development server, and a
  production server.
In some projects we have a file that stores configuration settings
specific to that server (eg IP addresses, file paths, etc)

What's the best way to deal with such files? At the moment I'm finding
that I'm continually accidentally commiting the version that I use on my
dekstop and then deploying that to the development server accidentally.

I was thinking of simply putting the file in its own directory and
pointing that directory on the different machines to different branches.
Has anyone got a better solution?
