Interested in transferring data on VHS in VCR to PC

Hi Everyone:

        While this post has similiarities to one previously closed, I am wanting to go over some things for clarity and confirmation purposes.  Last night, I ordered bundled Pinnacle Studio AV/DV 9.  This bundled package includes an analog/digital capture card with an IEE1394 port and ports for RCA jacks for analog input.  The package includes a professional video editing program called Pinnacle Studio 9.0.  
It is my understanding I can simply connect the VCR to the RCA ports of the capture card, open Pinnacle Studio 9.0, click Play on the VCR and click Record within the software to begin capturing the clips.  Am I correct with respect to the logistics of this project?

         Thank you.
