In addition to redirecting the feed, semantically you should be doing a 301 redirect. I modified this plugin mainly to work with WordPress 2.1 alpha but also I updated it to perform 301 redirects. Even though I made it compatible with WordPress 2.1 it'll run on WP 2.0. I changed the add_feedburner_redirect() function so that in the $new_rules variables whenever there was a [R,L] I changed it to a [R=301,L]. This has the effect of doing a 301 redirect. After that, I regenerated the Permalink rules to make the changes take effect. If you don't want to modify your ol_feedburner.php file you can always modify the .htaccess by hand. Just change all occurences of [R,L] to [R=301,L] I know all that sounds really complicated but it was as simple as a search-and-replace.
