If i understand your setup right you can just move the physical extents from
your IDE-Drive to the SCSI-Drives. You do this with "pvmove <device>",
<device> being the physical volume you want to remove.  You can, if you
want, also specify to which PV's the PE's get moved to (see manpage).

If i am not mistaken, this can even be done without unmounting the
filesystem(s).

Dont forget to remove the PV from your VG before you remove the drive.

have fun,
