Air in power steering line, How to flush/bleed it?

As per my stupid mistake in this thread:http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=129879

I lost all the power steering fluid in my system. I replaced the hardline I cut, and bolted everything back up nice and snug. Now the problem.

I filled the reservoir with fresh fluid, and started the car. The car seems to suck up all the fluid in the reservoir when running, and then returns the fluid to the reservoir when stopped. Im assuming the air in the line compresses when on.

ANYWAYS if you read all that, thanks. If not, heres the question. How can I BLEED the PS line to get air out? Has anyone done this before?

The only thing I can think of is to loosen the hardline fitting on the rack while having someone keep the reservoir full until it runs through. Any suggestions?
