connecting new stovetop

I just bought a new stovetop to replace an old one. The problen is the old has 3 wires,a black wire,a red wire and a copper wire for grounding. But the new stovetop has 4 wires,a black wire,a red wire,a white wire, and a copper wire. I know that red and black wires are both hot. I was told that the white wire is a neutral wire and could be connected on the same connector as the copper wire. Is this true? Should I connect the neutral wire to the same connector as I do the copper wire? I want to use the old connector from the old stovetop.

New wiring for stoves, ranges and cook tops (dryers also) is four wire. Old wiring for these devices is three wire.

There will be directions with your cook top on how to wire this properly for a three wire connection. Follow those directions to the letter. There is more than just making the connections of the actual wires.
