Wiring help

I'm hooking up electrical service to my new building, and have a question. First it is 200A service. The electric company said I have to install the meter box, conduit to the pole and service panel myself. Have it inspected, then they will come pull the power. I went to a electrical wholesaler and got the supplies. I am going to have my service panel 30' away from the meter box, so they said to be code I have to use 4 wire. My question is, I have done 4 whole house remodels and wired them all, but have never had to do anything with 4 wire.. How do you wire it? both the meter box and service panel are 3 wire, and the guy at the wholesaler said it was the right stuff... Is the 4th wire a second ground?
