4-way and 3-way switches

I put some lights in my basement hallway. I started with 2 wire cable into a fixture, switch looped to a 3-way switch. From there I ran 3 wire cable to a 4-way switch, and more 3 wire cable to another 3-way switch. Works great...my problem is I want a second fixture and cannot figure out how to connect in. Do I connect into the first 3-way switch, the last, the first fixture or what? I also need to know if I have to use 2 wire, 3 wire, or even 4 wire cable. Thanks for any help and sorry if I confused anyone.

Simple. Run a 2-wire cable from the first fixture to the second. At the first fixture, connect the new cable to exactly the same wires that the first fixture are connected to.
