Default Brake troubles!

Just put new rotors and pads on the rear of my 2000 RS. My brother and I did this at his house which is about an 8 minute drive from mine. So we get done, I drive home, pull in the garage and immediately smell hot brakes.

The drivers side front and rear rotors weren't hot at all, I woundn't even go so far as to say they were warm. The passengers side front and rear rotors were both pretty damn hot.

any ideas on whats going on or what I should do?

Did you lube up the sides of the brake pads? How about the sliding pins?
