There should be a green screw in the fixture already. If not, then there should be a threaded hole for a 10/32 grounding screw.

theres a green screw and a little nut to go with it but there is not a spot to put it in. there were like 3 holes that dont look like they were for a screw but i put the grounding screw in there anyway, hope the place doesnt burn down : ( is there anything special about where the grounding screw should be mounted or it can go anywhere?

Most fluorescents have a small unthreaded hole with two "bumps" next to it. This is where the supplied ground screw goes.
