Sounds like the sensor problem is preventing the cycle from completing. Everything has to work correctly for 50-100 miles before the cycle finishes.
You'll need to get the code definitions and have the components checked out.

Evap and catalyst not ready smog reject

Sometimes this is because the thermostat is not warming up the engine - and sometimes it is because the battery was disconnected or the computer has lost memory and has not been driven enough to relearn yet.
A local garage that deals with smog tests in your area should be able to advise.

What is the drive cycle for a 1998 Aurora, Battery was disconnected and need to reset sensors. Will not pass or fail smog test. Was told that i needed to do a Drive Cycle to reset the sensors?

This means you must drive the car long enough for all of the self-tests to run. Depending on the test it could be a single start and run to many cycles and many miles. Usually after about 50 miles of driving you have completed most tests.
I'm not sure where you are located, but in Ohio you can ask and have the car run on the dynamometer and compete your smog test this way.

Computer rejecting cats.

U have not completed the drive cycle, this means the system has not finished its internal self testing of the catalytic converters. A drive cycle is about 30-50 miles of mixed driving, stop and go slow medium and freeway speed driving with a more stops and idling.
