ceiling fan

I removed an old ceiling fan with a light kit that was operated by two separate switches. There is only one wire coming from the ceiling, Black, white and red. Which wires connect to the fan/light so that I can operate the fan and light from the two separate switches?

Welcome to the forums! Hook the white to white on the fan, black to black on the fan, and red to blue on the fan.

If you do not have a blue wire for the light kit the other typical color is black with a white stripe.
