ok now, i have never done this but i know that it is not difficult at all, there are straight and square pins, and it will be different depending on the amount of bulbs that you are wiring to a ballast...here check this out it should help a little, if there are any more questions feel free to ask

the diagram should be 4 pins, all of the CF bulbs and plugs i have seen are 4 pin, either straight or square, but with the diagram you should be able to get it, if you need any more help maybe a picture would make it easier for me to see what you are looking at
