> the BLUE wire by doug seibert on 07/23/2004

I am trying to install a new hunter ceiling fan with a light kit. I have taken down the old fan. I have 2 wall switches, one that should control the fan, and one the should control the light.
The house wires are white, black, red and green. The fan wires are white, black, white/black and green. (Alas, the old fan had 3 wires, not 4, so I am CONFUSED!!)

I understand the white to white and green to green, but am lost as to what to do with the black wires and the white/black wire.

Please help because I am doing this same project in two rooms, with identical wiring and identical fans.
