I wrote a howto [1] for installing Ubuntu 13.04 but it can be easily
adapted for Debian. The differences are where from to get
packages/binaries needed to sign kernel and manipulate partition table.

You will need "cgpt" and "vbutil_kernel" binaries which you can take
from ChromeOS or rebuild Ubuntu packages or grab "vboot-utils" from
Debian NEW queue and rebuild it.

For kernel I strongly suggest using one from Ubuntu:
linux-image-chromebook-3.4.0-5. It also may need rebuilding for Debian
due to different dependencies in both systems (like firmware package
which has other name).
