Wrunner is right! Make sure you do this IMMEDIATELY. Remove the hub(if 4wd) pull snap ring, get a Chiltons or Haynes manual and tighten the adjusting nut to factory ft. lbs. DO NOT drive like will burn up the bearings and rotor as well.

Just want to know how to put the rotors on the car.

If your rotors (new ones) came as just the rotor with no center hub, just remove the brake caliper, take the rotor off and put the new one back on. But, the one i think you have is a bit different...with hub attached. On that one, remove the center cover, cotter pin and nut.
Remove caliper. push on one side of the rotor and the outer bearing and washer will come out. Put the parts aside and pull on the rotor and it will come off. Put the nut back on the spindle and put the rotor on over the nut, "hook" the inner bearing on the nut as you give the rotor a quick tug (like removing it) and inner bearing will come out.
Clean and re-pack bearings and install (I recommend you replace the inner seal.) Put together in reverse order of removal, tighten nut snugly but not really tight, turn rotor while tightening. It is tight enough when there is no wobble in the rotor. that is all you need.Don't forget the cotter pin. If hole does not align, tighten do not loosen nut till hole aligns.

95' mustang no fire

This also happened to my '95 mustang 5.0L I was actually driving when it lost power. Take the cap off of the distributor and see if the shaft wiggles. The distributor shaft in the mustangs are the weakest point of the engine. If the shaft wobbles the rotor will wobble hitting the points and may break the rotor. All the metal grinding will put little metal shavings in the housing where the magnetic pick-up will attract them, this is the problem. You can replace the magnetic pick-up but if the shaft is moving around you will need a new distributor all around.

Brake pads and rotors glazed over?

Well .. if indeed you have glazing and you don't want to replace the rotors you can either use some emery cloth to "sand" them by hand or have them cut (if you can find an automotive or machine shop). But you should also replace the pads then
