I need information on installing track lighting taping into an existing florescent light. Please provide any information that you can. Would like to try and install this weekend. Thanks in advance.

I'm not an electrician, but this is what I would do.
Turn OFF breaker to flourescent light.
Remove tubes and lower fixture to find black (hot), white (neutral), and bare or green (ground) wires in ceiling electrical box.
Twist like-kind wires together and wirenut. Notch sheetrock to edge of flourescent light fixture for track light bar wire (butt track bar to fixture).
Good Luck!
