 1. Export to an LDIF file.
 2. Exit slapd
 3. Remove the database
 4. Change all instances of "dc=mydomain, dc=com" into "o=myorg, c=US"
 5. Start slapd
 6. Import the database with slapdadd

Downtime will depend on the size of the database. But you fill propably
find that it will take much more time to change all those other spots
where you are referring to "dc=mydomain, dc=com" now into "o=myorg, c=US".

This may take weeks before you spotted them all.
