Essentially yes. They key concepts (in order of implementation) are:

- Add the "physical volume"s to the volume group.
- Create a logical volume from the pool of disk blocks in the volume group.
- Format the logical volume with a file system.
- Mount the file system.
That's an over-simplification but gives you a conceptual framework to fill in with the details. In addition to EricTRA's link (which I find over-detailed for an introduction but we're all different) you may also find these two helpful: grimoire
and The Linux Documentation Project (tldp)
. I like grimoire best as an introduction.
