Unhappy Need help installing a ceiling fan!

Just purchased a Huntington III ceiling fan from home depot to replace our old one. There are 2 wires coming out of the ceiling (white and yellow) and our ceiling fan has 4 wires (white, black, blue and green(2)). I know that the blue and black will attach to the yellow, the white will attach to the white but not sure where the green ones go? There is a green wire in the ceiling mounting that I have already attached to the ceiling and there is another green wire connected to the fan. Do I connect the two green wires together? Help! Don't want to burn down my house. Thanks!

Green is the ground wire. It connects ALL other green and bare wires in the box.
