Problem installing lighttpd

I'm trying to install lighttpd on my NSLU2. It had been installed, but i removed it to try a different server package and it didnt work out for me. So i tried installing it again, but apt gives me this error.

NSLU2:/etc# apt-get install lighttpd
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Suggested packages:
  rrdtool apache2-utils
The following NEW packages will be installed:
0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 0B/287kB of archives.

Selecting previously deselected package lighttpd.

Unpacking lighttpd (from .../lighttpd_1.4.13-4_arm.deb) ...
Setting up lighttpd (1.4.13-4) ...
Starting web server: lighttpd2006-12-06 16:07:31: (configfile.c.869) opening configfile  /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf failed: No such file or directory
invoke-rc.d: initscript lighttpd, action "start" failed.
dpkg: error processing lighttpd (--configure):
 subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
Any ideas about how to fix it?
