> Diagram for wiring a three way switch by Handyman on 05/18/2005

I am replacing an old dimmer switch with a new one. The old one has two black wires, one connected to a black wire in the box and one connected to a beige wire in the box. The new one has three wires --- a red one, a black one and a green one. How should I connect them. The instructions say to connect the green one to a ground wire or ground screw. I see neither one in the box.
