I'm trying to install a two-way switch (hs200), but the box I want to install into only has one set of wires coming in (hot, neutral, and ground). The switch has two black wires, so how to I connect both wires?

I thnk what you mean to say is the box actually does not have a neutral wire in which case you cannot install the switch without an electrician's help.

 

what you currently have is a hot(live) a load wire(goes to the fixture) and a ground. you need a neutral so the switch can stay powered.
