Furnace room ventilation

I have a new 100,000 btu natural gas furnace in a room
about 170 sq feet with a 7 ft ceiling. I recently put
a solid door to the room to reduce (and it has
substantially) noise from the forced air furnace.

Unfortunately in order for the burners to ignite
obviously they require air (oxygen). I have been
told that with this solid door closed the room
is too sealed off for enough oxygen to keep the
burners going when they come on. I was told to
put a vent to the outside with a pipe to within
2 feet of the burners to provide them with air
from the outside.

Does this make sense?
