Help wiring light kit for ceiling fan

I need a little instruction on making the proper wiring connections for a 3 bulb light kit for my ceiling fan. My first attempt resulted in a thrown breaker. I have been looking for soem specific instructions on the various web sites, but can't seem to find what I'm looking for. Could you refer me to the right site?

If this is a new install or replacement of an old light, I would re-read the instructions included with the new item. Then recheck all the connections to ensure I didn't cross up a couple of neutral and hot wires. If I still couldn't find the problem, I'd remove the fixture, make sure the source hot, neutral and ground weren't touching one another, then I'd use a test light to ensure that which I think is hot really is hot.
