Recompiling the Puppy Kernel


I recently compile a SMP kernel. I set the SMP flag in .config and did a make bzImage and make modules. I copy the modules out my boot and rename it vmlinuz.

Instead of booting, I get the error message

ERROR, cannot find Puppy on 'usbflash' boot media.
Exit to initial-ramdisk(initramfs) commandline..
(the linux-guru can debug, 'e3' editor is available

I looked in initrd, it appears that Puppy can't figure out which file system I am using. Has anyone who compile their own kernel chime in?
