Default question regarding transformer hookup

ugh, it must be late or something (i actually did outdoors stuff today, ick), but my mind isnt working, and i dont want to mess this up.

im trying to hook up my transformers i just got so i can finally power up my alephs, but i just cant seem to figure out what all 8 wires do.

they are avel lindbergs and i am using bridge rectifiers (35A/600V). here is the spec sheet from the transfomers:

http://www.partsexpress.com/pdf/avelspecs.pdf

the hookup is at the bottom, but i cant seem to understand it.

my blu, gry, vio, brn, blk, red, ora, yel wires are 0 , 115v, 115v, 0, 0, 18v, 18v, 0, respectively...

do i use two bridges per channel? i have the cap bank all ready to go. can someone helo so i could possibly power up a channel tonight?

Default Center tap

Input: for 110 volt
Blue and Violet neutral

Output:
Red AC to rectifier
Orange AC to rectifier
Yellow and Black to ground

or

Output
Black AC to rectifier

This will give you +/- (1.4 X AC of secondaries) unloaded.
