break booster fit?

One of the future projects I may undertake will be a front disc conversion. I have read that when you do the conversion it's a good idea to get a new master cylinder that was used for disk front/drum rear applications. I have a used Master cylinder and break booster combo on an old 1983 Chevy S-10 I am not using any more.
I've never worked on or around this part of the break system. What kind of things should I look for to see if the S-10 set up will work well in the Jeepster? Is there a certain size mount that works best? Are master cylinders activated by a plunger or rod in the rear behind the fire wall? I could use any info on how these things work.

You don't necessarily have to change the master cylinder. I am using the stock (rebuilt) non-power MC with front disks and rear (10") drums, and I am very happy with the results. It stops 33" tires no problem, and the front/rear balance seems perfect without any additional proportioning valve. Just FYI.
