    If it were me... I'd just do a "fresh" install rather than trying to repair a botched install. In the end, it might even be quicker, plus you'll get more practice at Debian installation.

    it will ask you if you want to install grub. You can select no if you want.

    This is IMHO easier if you've already got Grub installed because of some other distro. You'll just need to edit the menu.list file in the first distro's /boot/grub folder (if you need help with this, just ask, I've done it a few times).
