Are you talking about a package of bees? A package of bees is a smallish box with screen on the front and back and a smaller cage inside with the queen in it. The larger box has the bees in it, about 3 or 4 pounds ( depending whether you ordered a 3 or a 4 pound package ).
You can install a package of bees on to either drawn comb, or foundation. If you don't have frames of drawn comb don't worry, they will happily draw out foundation. It will just take them a bit longer.
There are very detailed instructions for installing a package in the Beekeeping for Dummies book, Beekeeping a Practical Guide by Richard Bonney, and many other publications maybe even one you already own!! I hope this helps you and good luck!
