What about putting an own Kernel + initrd with debian+ssh onto the fedora
system and boot that? If that works you have an accessable debian system
*and* can fiddle with the disc as you like (partionize and debootstrap)
In case your kernel + initrd does not boot a local admin can press reset
and boot the origical fedora system.
If it works you can set up your debian without any big problems.
