Scroll down and it says: "Note: tailpiece shuld be connected to common ground." and "All grounds (sign) must be connected."
What do they mean by this? What do tailpice, common ground and the sign mean?

They are telling you to run a ground wire from the tail piece to the back of your volume pot which is where all your ground wires should terminate.

That (sign ) you are talking about, the 3 parallel lines, is the symbol used on wiring diagrams to indicate that it is a ground.
When you see that, like in that diagram where they show the blue capacitor going from a terminal of the tone pot to the back of the tone pot, you have to run a ground wire from the connection on the back of the tone pot to the common ground termination point on the back of the volume pot.

Also, just incase you did not see it. The third terminal on the volume pot ( the one with no wires running to it) needs to be bent back and soldered to the back of the pot.

Well, i only have 1 ground wire( that is connected to the plate that hold the springs for the floyd) and it the diagram says that it and the bare wiers from oth of the pickips shuld be soldered together... Do i need to use any other wiers than the wiers on the drawing? Sorry im pretty noob at this...

The wire you have running to the spring plate would be the ground wire that they are referring to.
If you had a Les Paul type bridge, that wire would be connected to the tail piece of the bridge.
Strat trems and Floyd roses ground off to the spring plate.

That wire and all other ground wires should be soldered to the back of the volume pot. You can either solder them together and then make one connection on the pot or run them all individually to the pot.
Each component in the cavity should have a ground wire including the switch.

If this is just a pick up swap then you should have all the wires in there that you need.

If it is a new or complete rewire that you are doing then you will have to run a ground wire from eachpoint that shows that symbol in the diagram.
