Then this was your partition layout under redhat:
/dev/hda5 on / type ext2 (rw,errors=remount-ro,errors=remount-ro)
/dev/hda2 on /boot type ext2 (rw)
That means that under redhat, /home was on the / partition. Which in turn
means that you must have told debian to use the /dev/hda5 for / when you
were installing Debian.
Which, in turn means that you should have seen the notice that doing so
would wipe out the contents of that partition. If you did not see that
notice, perhaps we have a bug in the installer -- it used to print such a
notice and it should still do so.
