CFL Lamps

These are quite economical as emergency lighting systems. They can also be dimmed.
They need some kind of preheating.
Can anyone give me a working circuit to use these. Preferably withouting any special purpose IC's?

Thanks in advance.

data sheet

The data sheet **broken link removed** says that they can run directly from a 12 V battery.
