Need Help Wiring RG550

I just purchased a Dimarzio ToneZone(bridge) Dimarzio HS-2 single and a Evolution for the neck. I need help with wiring! I have been looking over the Dimarzio wiring diagrams but the switch they are showing seems to be a little different, and the single coil they illustrate only has red and white wires. My pickups including the single have red, green, black, white, and the bare wires. I want to make sure I do this right. Can someone please explain this to me or maybe show me a diagram?

By the way my RG550 is a 2002 model if it helps.

I think I have the Humbuckers figured out (HOPEFULLY)... This is what I have:

V8 Red -> ToneZone Red
V8 White -> ToneZone Black+White
V8 Bare -> ToneZone Green+Bare

V7 Red-> Evo Red
V7 White-> Evo Black+White
V7 Bare-> Evo Green+Bare

I still havent figured out the single coil. Please Help!!

The switch in the 2nd diagram is what I was looking for. ThankYou for showing me that.
I have one more question. Following those directions should the neck pickup be reversed as shown in Dimarzios wiring diagrams. So that when the humbucker splits in posistion 2 and 4 the the coil closest to the single is used.
