Flourescent lighting power source and connection?

Hi all,

I am new to the arduino universe, but I do have one project under my belt. I am now working on backlit photo frame that will be lit with a series of 3 fluorescent light bulbs. In addition I am trying to control them via IR sensor. The sensor will simply allow me to turn off the bulbs via remote control. I guess my issue starts with power supply. What do I need to get for my arduino for it power the florescent lights? Also how do I connect the lights to my arduino board? That is where I am stuck right now. Sorry if this is too basic of a problem, just let me know if I should get lost and read some more forums or what not.
