Which two ways? Is there three wires in the cord, black, white and green? If so you need the black and white ones, the green will be the ground. The lights are probably grounded internaly. Make sure there is not a place for a ground to be connected inside the light assembly, there is no wiring instructions? Be very careful trying random wire combinations, hopefully you are on a circuit that will pop instead of something bad happening. It's probably just the two though.

AZ..again, not positive, but I believe those 'florex' lights require a 'flourex' socket, which has a ballast. Go back to HD and read/find the info. I recall looking at them a year or so ago, and rejecting their use. Seems like that was the reason..
