I expected that the installer would give me a choice about how much partition space to use out of the 1TB available, but I could not find any way in the installer to tell it not to use the full 1TB.

Go to www.debian.org and select "Installation Manual" from the menu. If
you look at section 6.3.2 then you see a concise description of what you
can do with your disk and partitioning.

Hint: check out the "manual" option.
