Did you get the proper ballast? They are rated for how many tubes, the type of tubes, the input voltage. Isit wired correctly? Is the input power good(breaker tripped). Is the fixture grounded. Some won't work without a ground.

Someone recently posted this great reference on fluorescent light troubleshooting -- it has a lot of useful info about getting the proper ballast and starter (if applicable).
