thermostat questions

I am changing a White-Rogers 1F79 thermostat to a Hunter 4299b and the wiring does not match what do I do?

Take the Hunter back to the store and get a Honeywell. Helps also to post a picture of the wiring on the current thermostat.
Ren: Now listen, Cadet. I've got a job for you. See this button? Ren: Don't touch it! It's the History Eraser button, you fool! Stimpy: So what'll happen? Ren: That's just it. We don't know. Maybe something bad, maybe something good. I guess we'll never know, 'cause you're going to guard it. You won't touch it, will you?

Well, dropping back 6 yards and punting is good start.

Which would include posting brand and model n umber of your furnace, A/C or heat pump. Along with what wires are connected where on the WR stat.
