It is the right place, thank you!

But I'm not sure if the olpc.fth file will work as is, the kernel is
not /boot/vmlinuz but /boot/vmlinuz-$VERSION. You can reach it
trough /vmlinuz, but it is a symlink located in a different partition.

Another thing to do might be optimizing the disc schema for the XO. We
are currently using this as default:

-Ext3 /boot (min 128, max 256MB)
-swap (min 256, max 300% ramsize)
-Xfs / (min 3GB, max 10GB)
-Xfs /home (min 600MB, no max)

Maybe something like this would work better for that machine (especially
if its ssd disk is affected by write amplification problems[1]):

-Ext2 / (min 2GB, max 5GB)
-swap (min 256, max 200% ramsize)
-Ext2 /home (min 600MB, no max)
