    Default grounding question

    I am installing a incandescent light fixture, which came with a black wire, a white wire, and a bare grounding wire.

    In the electrical box, there is a black and white wire coming out, and the ground wire is connected to the green grounding screw loacted on the box....

    now...my electrical knowledge is limited but if the box is already grounding the current from the wires, do I need to do anything with the grounding wire on the fixture?

    Yes, you need to hook it to the ground wire.
