If you have a total of 3 drives, it is really not that bad.

Boot off of your SuSE CD and go into rescue mode.

Then dd from 3ware drive to direct ide drive.

Reboot into the 3ware bios and create the mirror.

That only takes a couple of minutes.

Then boot back to the SuSE CD in rescue mode and dd the image back onto
the mirror.
