You actually need a bit more than that.  I have a bug filed to include
an olpc configuration file for dracut so that will work.  Take a look
http://dev.laptop.org/ticket/10592 and see if it helps you out.  Just
download the attached olpc.conf file into  /etc/dracut.conf.d and then
re-run dracut to generate your image.

Hope that helps.
