diy pc lighting wiring q

I have 2- 55 W PC Raulux(sp) bulbs. Bought the endcaps for them and a ballast. Now the ballast has 4 wires 2-red 2-blue and i know each color goes to one bulb , but how do i wire the endcaps up to match how the bulbs are. The bulbs are 4-pin.
Do i wire the pos and neg pins on each bulb together then attach the ballast to the endcap?
