Question: i have bgp running on a layer3 switch to provider A, and now im trying to configure ospf with /30 and /32 loopback ips to provider B's mpls vpn network thru a cat5 handoff. Can I configure ospf on that switch if its already running bgp, wont that interfere?
You can configure both on the router. They will not interfere on the wire because they are completely different protocols. Also this is a common scenario as BGP is an external gateway protocol and OSPF is for internal use. So it is not common to receive a route via BGP and advertise it back in to OSPF or visa versa.
Do you happen to have or direct me to a config of OSPF and loopback interface on layer3 switch (WS-C3560G-24TS) using VLAN. I know how to do on a router with Serial and ethernet interface, but not on a switch where i have to use the Vlan interface to assing my /30 IP.

interface we use the VLAN tag to demultiplex the VLANs. The switch needs
to determine which MAC Address table to look in for a forwarding
decision. To do this we require the switch to do...
