Help! - Advice replacing brakes

Have an '89 Civic and want to replace the front and rear brakes, got an Hayes manual but didn't help much. Just wanted to replace the disc, pads, drums and shoes but didn't get very far. Please visit my webpage to see my problems:

Is there any website or info. anyone can direct me to?

Thank you all for any help in advance!

The two screws you have circled in red uses a No. 3 phillips to remove. Spray it with a some wd-40 to loosen it up and then use some muscle. If muscle doesn't work, hammer the back end of your phillips a little to loosen the screw some more. Not sure about the drums. Never changed one before.

Here's the DIY for the 7th gen. Should be similar:

Two screws for the disc. Why are you replacing the drums?

Thank you thank you thank you! That's probably what I need for the front brakes, will try that this week.

Because the drum has worn down to the edge, I've got no drum left.
