Anybody seen this before and know the fix?

I've installed 1.0.5 Chubby over a 1.0.4 version a fat32 partition. It booted fine from CD but the HD boot fails to load the usb driver and pauses. It does continue but the mouse is USB only so I need it. The error messages say:
/lib/modules/2.4.29/scsi/usbcore.0.gz not found?

It may be a grub thing but I'm not sure. I manually removed the old puppy version and did a fresh install.

This is my current grub file which used to work with 1.0.4 fine:

I fingered it out. Needed to add the size to my grub statement to get the drivers loaded. The default ram disk size is too small.
Was:
Code:

title Puppy Linux
   rootnoverify (hd0,0)
   kernel (hd0,6)/vmlinuz root=/dev/ram FILE=pup001-none-262144
   initrd (hd0,6)/image.gz
   boot


Now:
Code:

title Puppy Linux
   rootnoverify (hd0,0)
   kernel (hd0,6)/vmlinuz root=/dev/ram ramdisk_size=13312 PFILE=pup001-none-262144
   initrd (hd0,6)/image.gz
   boot


I got the size from the config file, isolinux.cfg, on the CD.
