If the backups you did are bootable clones, any one can be used to restore the old system back into the internal drive. Else you will have to dig out the SL install DVD and start with a fresh install of both the system as well as all the applications.
You can tell if a bootable system is found in a drive by plugging it in, turning it on and opening System Preferences / Startup Disk. If the drive pops up in the list, it has a system and it will tell you what it is.

I'm still a little confused... I did Time Machine back ups.
Either way, I copied and pasted my user files over to my external and also did a back up. So I'll see what happens when I do an erase and try to restore with SL.
