debootstrap. I'm sure ubuntu has got it. you can save yourself a
download and burn (sort of). Boot that live cd, use it to
partition your hd however you like, mount the new / partition and use
debootstrap to install the basic system. more details here:


just point it to the debian mirrors and away you go. Its a little more
complicated than a straight install, but sure can teach you a lot
