When the domain comes online and you have access to the dns settings, you need to setup something like the following (having not used or seen OVH's domain panel I can't explain directly):

www A
"www" is the subdomain name
"A" is the record type
"" is your servers ip

You will need to add a record for each of the following subdomains:

"" (blank)
"*" or "@" (for wrong subdomains to be read and pointed to your server (not required, but handy))

If you have a hard time understanding let me know.
