Hopefully, Juanita, you painted a sealer over the drywall before you papered. If so, you should have no problem. If you used vinyl paper, strip the vinyl layer off (any three year old can do this and many of them have) then with a sponge, putty knife and water, soak and peel off the backing paper. If your paper is not coated, then just soak and peel off. If it will not come off fairly easily, you may want to use a "paper tiger"--a good wallpaper store will know what this is-- and stripping solution.
If you didn't seal the drywall first, you could have a real mess. About anything you do will loosen the paper that covers the drywall. Try using the above method and let us know how it is coming along but try to use as little water as possible that will still do the job.
