Default br-re/or-ye

how does it go again when you want to use dual secondaries as one center tap? i only have 2 big capacitors.
Click the image to open in full size.
find two wires with 0V between em and use them as ground?

ok, it hooked it up and i'm still alive. the rectifier is putting out -8.5V and 8.5V DC (without any caps). still seems low. these are 18V secondaries. i hook up wrong?

Have you got dual primaries hooked up for 220 and plugged into 110?

one primary 120V

i looked all over the website for some kind of schematic. all have is the "br-re/or-ye" written on the side. and i just looked through the transformer chapters of three textbooks and none of them said how to use two secondaries as a center tap. how do i figure out what is what so that i can use that "secondaries in series" schematic on the right?
