    Thank you very much ! It works fine now ! It was just the .dongle file... I think the .htpasswd is created automatically ! Thank you one other time :-) !

      Yes, there is a .dongle, which is empty, owned by root, and mode 0666;
      there is also .htpasswd, which appears to contain (encoded) passwords
      for the nslu2 web interface, owned by root, mode 0644.  Obviously, I'm
      not going to send you a copy of my .htpasswd, but you may be able to
      reconstruct one using the htpasswd utility that comes with apache.

      You could also reformat your disk with your nslu2, and then untar your
      saved data into the conf partition.

      tar cz /share/hdd/conf/* is not a safe way to backup any directory, as
      it leaves out the hidden files.

      tar cz /share/hdd/conf would have been a safer way to do what you
      wanted.
