How Do I Overwrite an Ubuntu Linux With a Debian Linux

I installed the Ubuntu distro that came with the mill.  It looked odd, then I remembered that I had changed to a Debian distro instead.  How do I overwrite the singleboot Ubuntu with the Debian distro?

Two DVDs that both said Debian CNC.  One installs at boot, one does not.

Install a live CD (I like System Rescue CD), and dd if=/dev/zero bs=64M of=/dev/[the disk in question]? I always do this so that full image backups compress well, making it less painful to keep them around in case I need to do a bare metal restore.
