Correct way to break a mirror

I have 2 HD in Raid 1. I want to break the mirror and maintain the data on both drives so that I now would have two copies of the installation for this particular server. This way I can play with configs. If drive 0 goes south due to my tinkering I want to be able to put drive 1 in and boot to it, remirror and start over. Is this possible and what would the proper procedure be to do this? I have heard that it is possible but a pain... Comments/ideas?

Thanks in advance.
