Recovery State : Restore with NoRecovery

MS SQL 2005 DB Restoration

If I select "Leave the database nonoperational (Restore with NoRecovery) option",can I open DB at least for read-only?
I understand I can restore additional transaction logs with this restoration.
But what if I select this option and don't apply any more t-log restoration?

I gues my question is what "nonoperation" means.

Thank you for your time

leaving the database non-operational means that  you are doing a partial restore, and that you want to perform additional actions before putting the database online. Uncommitted transactions will be not be rolled back, and additional transaction logs can be restored to increase the 'completeness' for the data
