Cooling Fan Wiring Diagram?

Does anybody have a wiring diagram for attaching 12V cooling fans to an 110V adapter?

The two fans I have have three wires; black, red and yellow.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The yellow is the ground. Just attach it to something metal in the hood. BTW I didn't ground mine, now every time I reach into to the tank and touch the metal I get shocked like CRAZY!!! Scares the hell out of me

The red is postive and the black is negative (most likley)

If it is DC and you connect them backwards the fan will run backwards. I am not sure if it will do this with an ac connection. (mine didn't)
