basically just remove the rear wheels, spray wd-40 on the wheel studs. then start hitting the drum with a hammer (be careful not to damage wheel studs) to brake loose the rust. after a couple of good whacks start hitting the drum from behind and it should pop right off..

The correct way to remove the drum is to remove the wheel, and then, you will see two small holes in the drum. You need to find a bolt that is a couple inches long that fits the threads in these holes. I do not remember the bolt size or thread patter. You then tighten the bolts into those two holes and they will evenly push the drum off of the hub. Normally hammering on the drum will loosen it up enough to remove, but you must be careful. If it is really stuck you must use the bolts.
