Adding pull chain switch to ceiling fixture

I am replacing a pull chain ceiling fixture with a ceiling fixture that is designed to be used with a wall switch. I was told I could do the following to convert it: Drill a hole in the rim of the fixture to accecpt a pull chain switch. Attach the black wire from the ceiling box to one of the pull chain wires. Attach the black wire from the fixture to the second wire from the pull chain. This effectively "interrupts" the circuit when the pull chain is in the "off" position. Attach the white wire from the ceiling directly to the white wire from the fixture. Sounds easy. Does this sound correct? Thanks.

This is exactly correct.Break the black line and run the white direct.
