4-pin 18W Compact fluorescent hook-up

I have a bit of a problem figuring the right way to hook up a 4-pin to my ballast, i don't have a lampholder, but i was wondering how to get the pins paired up for the yellow and the red wire (im using the 120V Fulham Workhorse 5 ballast).

for your safety and the safety of others you will need to get lamp holders.
they will have wire leeds to work with.

And continue the thread here: Electricians or know-how only , where it started.
There is no need for two identical threads running.
Sometimes I feel like if I answer any more questions it is like someone trying to climb over a fence to jump off a bridge and me giving them a boost.
