Basic information on wiring for compact fluor lights?

Can someone point me towards some sites that explain wiring and diagrams for compact fluorescent lights? I have a certain bulb that I want to retrofit to my hood and am not sure how to do it. I know I need a ballast, end caps and wires, but that is as far as I have gotten.
