Ignition coil info

Does anybody know on the coil it says that you should use with external resistor. Is there supposed to be a condenser/capacitor to use on this coil? On my engines coil there is the just one wire running from the coil to the distributor and another from the coil to the ignition. On other engines i have seen a third wire though not sure what the purpose might be.
