Angry abs traction light on and brake when start moving

Decided to do my rear brakes, to make it easy, since i had to replace shoes and the drum too and went to orileys and got the drum with a wheel bearing and replaced it.
All i did is took the nut out, replaced the shoes, installed the new hub and voala for the drivers side. The pass side after taking the old drum out the black washer came out, so before the axle nut i put that washer and the tightened the nut. Started the car, and got all those light. I understand i messed something up with abs, and after looking at my old drums they have wheel bearing and and i guess the second is abs ring. and those new drums i think had only one, so only wheel bearing. Can anyone actually walk me through the process and if i actually have to get different drums press out the wheel bearing, do something with those abs rings or, in one of the threads, i read the abs unit itself might have died. What i should ?
any help is greatly appreciated

Simple answer is that you need the right bearings, WITH the "tone rings" for the ABS to work.

Whatever way is cheapest/easiest for you at this point.

hardly the first time this has happened, so don't wast too much time crying over it!

There are a LOT more without ABS than with it, so the parts guys don't think to ask if yours has ABS 'cause they seldom sell any that way....

It would be possible to press the old bearings out and press them into the new drums or drums are different with/without abs?
