My lights have the "HO" type bulbs, which are almost 100 watts each, and have a 
special recessed 2-pin connector on each end.  I think the ballasts for those 
are less common (and more expensive).  The next time I go to Lowe's or HD, I'll 
look around.

Thanks to whoever started this thread!  I've learned a lot about fluorescent 
lamps the last day or so (when I should have been doing something else).
