PC Ballast and Watt ratings

Hi,
I have a question for you electronic folks about the wattage ratings on ballasts for PC lighting. I was looking at some of the ballasts only for sale at one of the sites and noticed that several of them listed for lights 18w to 65 watts or something like that.
Are all ballasts like that ? To be specific I guess, I have a ballast for a 65watt PC bulb. Can or will it run say an 18 watt ok or no.,
Thanks.
