I just checked and none of the 2.4 kernels has the support for USB built-in:
bash-4.2$ grep -r 'CONFIG_USB=' *
So, you'll have to reinstall, then chroot to /mnt, make an initrd including needed modules, adapt lilo.conf accordingly then run lilo before rebooting.
If you need guidance to do that, just ask.
PS the greeting message of Slackware 11.0 says:
In a pinch, you can boot your system from here with a command like:
For example, if the Linux system were on /dev/hda1.
boot: sata.i root=/dev/hda1 noinitrd ro
Would that work, that could save you a re installation, but I'm afraid that wouldn't, as sata.i doesn't have USB support built-in
PPS But first, check in the BIOS that your machine can boot from USB...
