Question about Electrical Supplies
There are 2 3way switches. Usually one end has a wire going to the light, and the other end 3 way switch has the always on power coming in. Between the two switches are 2-wire travellers.
On the actual 3way switches;
2 screws are the same color and the 2-wire travellers go on these. The other screw is a different color -usually black. This screw gets the power on one end, and the switch leg to the light at the other end.

FIrst of all, it is actually called a 3-way switch system. I would suggest that you either consult and elexctrician or look up the Time-Life series on home projects which contains a couple of volumes on electrical projects. Included in there are complete diagrams of how to hook up 3-way switch systems.
