one word: carefully.

Taking the drum off is actually straight forward. After removing the tire and spacer if so equiped, just tap off the drum from behind with a hammer. As soon as you do this, take pictures so you have a reference for where all your springs go. There should be 4-5 and they need to match up with the plates after you get the new shoes in. If it's your first time pulling drum breaks, a digital camera will be your best friend.

Oh, and to get the springs back in place, a small flat blade screwdriver will help you stretch and slide the spring end into it's hole.
