Gentlemen, (1997 318i)

I was driving today in the freeway, and all of the sudden I smelt something burning and white smoke came out underneath the car ('cause I looked in the rear view mirror thinking that was the car behind me). Temperature gauge was ok, and the car was driving ok, when I got home I opened the hood and noticed that the a/c compressor belt was broker, I pulled out what was left of it. I checked my owners manual and it appears that is the a/c compressor belt. Can I still drive my vehicle? Is the a/c compressor burned out?. How difficult it is to change the belt? How much is it to replace it at the mechanic?

Before this happened, I was having problems with my a/c, it will turned on and off automatically, and when it turned off, cool air was still coming out.

PLEASE HELP,

It's not bad to drive without the AC belt, and it's fairly easy to change it yourself if you've got a friend helping.
