They are giving you a vector to intercept the localizer. So yes it will be off of a direct heading towards the airport. Try the help functions in FS9 to check out flying an ILS approach to see what I'm refering to.

Beware! Most of the time the ATC vectors will work out but sometimes... they will send you off on a wild goose chase that takes you so far off the track that you will never get there. And somtimes they will just stop talking to you for no apparent reason. Have fun!
