Can you turn a page into a master page after the page has already been setup and developed not as a master page

I am creating my website for the first time and recently just learned about master pages.  My problem is I have done a bunch of development on my Default.aspx page and I did not tell it was a Master Page.  Is there a way that I can now go back and designate it as the master page?

Thanks
Kenny

That did not work for me because I am using an Infragistics Menu control that had a problem being copied to another page.  Is ther another way around this?

I did that and it worked but when I run the page now I get an error message

The website declined to show this webpage.

Any ideas?

Thanks
