Bleeding the air from the cooling system

Greetings-I am currently in the process of replacing the lower radiator hose on my 1997 Taurus GL Vulcan (engine-3.0) and I am wondering if anyone can tell me how to properly bleed the system of air. I don't recall doing so when I replaced the radiator a few years back, but it has been a while. Other sites recommend leaving the cap to the radiator off, but I would think it would make more sense on my car to run the car with the lid off the plastic degas tank (where you actually refill and top off the coolant). I'm not a mechanic though. Any advice that you can give would be greatly appreciated since my other hoses are not in the best of shape and I don't want the system to be under too much pressure and cause these to fail also. Thanks.
