Create a search center in the root site collection.

From the site collection in question, navigate to Site Settings, Search Settings (under Site Collection Administration). Or navigate to http://yoursitename/_layouts/enhancedSearch.aspx Here you want to choose 'Enable custom scopes' and enter your search center address (i.e. /searchcenter/pages).

You can then decide what scopes to show with the Site Collection Search Dropdown mode choice on that same screen.
