Change BGP to OSPF precedure

I need to change a router's a protocol from BGP to OSPF. This is on a internal router to the network and does not need BGP. I have a good idea how it's done, but what I want to do and I'm not sure about, is to change OSPF so that it will not take over until it's fully in place. I think I need to change the AD so that it's larger then BGP, but I'm not sure about it. After OSPF is in place,  I I'll change the OSPF AD back so that it will take over, then I can check the routing table and when I see BGP is not being used I can remove BGP?

Does anyone know how I would do this?

Thank you,
Dave

You configure OSPF and add the networks.

Verify that you can see the subnets in the OSPF database.

Shut off iBGP.

That is not what I ask, please don't answer, I'll wait for someone that understands the question.

Another way would be to make all relative interfaces passive under OSPF until you are ready. When you are ready to unleash OSPF remove passive interfaces. I would issue the passive-interface command before assigning networks under OSPF.
