Debian into an existing Loopback file system


I realize that the "best" way to install a distribtion
of Linux is to wipe the disk and start over, but I'm 
curious if anyone has tried this.

I put a copy of Dragon Linux on my laptop, in a 1-gig 
loop-back "partition" file so that it cohabitates with
windows just fine. However, having actually tried to 
use it has caused me to see the .deb package system and
dselect with renewed awe and reverence.

Can Debian be installed "over the top" of such a loop-
back style installation?
