Wouldn't it be easier to just put a new belt on?

Which engine do you have? The serpentine belt drives the water pump on the 3.3L engine, so you can drive it an entire minute or two before it overheats. The 3.0L engine doesn't run the water pump from the serpentine belt so you can drive it until the battery goes dead, typically about an hour. Doing so will push power steering out of the reservoir, so you'll have to refill it later.
