Default Hard Drive Failed Need Help

Ok what I have is a suse10 64bit system with a sata raid card with 3 hard drives. Two hard drives a raided together with raid 1 and have partitions of / and /boot and the other sata hard drive is a stand alone drive with partitions of /tmp.

The /tmp hard drive has failed and all I can get into is the command line interface.

1) How do I swap the hard drive for another sata drive and make it /tmp

2) OR swap it for an ide drive and make it /tmp.

Thanks for any help

Never mind I found what I was looking for.

1) Put new disk in and make a new partition
2) format the partition
3) Change the /etc/fstab if needed to reflect new drive

And then on a reboot it should all work.
