Well, it it was debian you installed, it didn't install itself; you
chose where to install it. If you did indeed choose a partition for
installation which previously had an HFS format and MacOS documents,
they are gone. You would have had to re-initialize the partition
before installing, converting it to ext2 or ext3 format in order to
install linux on it.

Post the output of mac-fdisk -l and point out the partitions you
are talking about.
