Upgrading to HRSP without downtime

Have a question or want to start a discussion? Post it! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I received a project of a network that needs upgrading.

The previous network admin, have made one single catalyst router for the
entire network.

In the upgrade I would like to change this router task with HRSP for better
redundancy, however I would like to avoid downtime for the network.

Could I make HRSP standby address the same as the catalyst's current
Interface address, and then afterwards change the interface address and
avoid downtime for the network?
