I need to install rear brake cylinders on my 90 FW, my CHILTON says something about a type of anti-lock brakes that you need to depressureise. I forget exactly what it was called right now, but how do I know if I have them, and how do I depressureise them so I can install my brake cylinders?

Check the master cylinder. If you see a whole bunch of pumps and resivors, you have the ABS system. This system is VERY complex, and I recommend following the manual to the letter. The rear brakes on the ABS equipped cars MUST BE PRESSURE BLED. Do not use any other method. There is nothing to depressurize for the wheel cylinder (or else it would be on all of the time). The important part is the bleeding procedure.
