I am about to install a Hunter fan to my kitchen, with the light kit included. I have done all the assembling up to the part where I have to do the electrical work. It looks fairly simple but there's one thing that stumps me. My fan has three wires: a white one, a black one, and a black one with white stripes (AKA black/white). Now I don't know which one is the light kit wire and which one is the fan wire. There are no labels on these wires. Please help me! (I'm also installing the remote controlling that came with it also.)

I'm 90% sure the black/white is the light kit and the solid black is the fan. You should be able to follow the connector that goes to the light kit back to one or the other.
If you're not putting in separate wall switches for the fan and light kit, but just plan to use the pull-chains, then it doesn't really matter. However if you are putting in separate switches, and you get them wrong, worst case is you'll need to swap the hot wires at the switches.
ps. Are you sure the instructions don't tell the wire colors, even if the wires themselves are not marked?
